Summary
  The Deaf-Mute Heroine steals some pearls, for reasons that are never disclosed, and a whole lot of people want to get them from her, or generally eliminate her. The problem (for them) is her superlative sword skills, hindered not at all by her handicaps. Romance blossoms with a kind but naive cloth-dyer, but it is not a good time to be romancing this heroine.

The Deaf and Mute Heroine" is known for its cult reputation built on moody decoupage, beautifully choreographed action and the title character's enigmatic presence. Helen Ma creates among the most memorable of martial arts women in this story of honour and revenge, helped in no small way by her nemesis, an equally brooding, enigmatic beauty played by sex kitten Shirley Huang.
