The film is set in 8th century China during last years of the Tang Dynasty. The film centers on Nie Yinniang (Shu Qi), an assassin who is directed to slay corrupt government officials by her master, Jiaxin, a nun who raised her from the age of ten. When Yinniang displays mercy by failing to kill during her duties, Jiaxin punishes her with a ruthless assignment designed to test Yinniang’s resolve. She is sent to the distant province of Weibo in northern China to kill its military governor Tian Ji'an — her cousin she had once been betrothed to.
The Assassin is loosely based on the late 9th century martial arts story "Nie Yinniang" by Pei Xing, a core text in Chinese swordsmanship and wuxia fiction.
