Histoire : ”Un peintre et calligraphe nous transporte dans un conte millénaire Chinois. Deux Serpents, White Snake et Green Snake sont des démons qui vivent dans le monde des immortels. Curieux de la condition humaine, ils décident de faire un tour chez les mortels. Sur terre, ils choisissent de prendre l’apparence de deux très belles femmes.


Le long des 5 rivières, White Snake tombe immédiatement amoureuse d’un jeune et beau pharmacien, Xi Xian. Lui aussi tombe sous le charme de cette femme mystérieuse. Green Snake, quant à elle, ne se réjouis pas de la lubie de son amie White. Cependant Green va l’aider à conquérir l’objet de son coeur.


Fai Hai, un moine chasseur de démons, passe non loin de là et met en garde le jeune Xi Xian du danger qui le guette. Ce moine qui a fait le voeux d’exterminer les démons sent l’approche des deux serpents. Pour sauver son jeune protégé, il est prêt à tout.


Mais il est déjà trop tard, l’amour est là, inexorable et grandissant. L’amour qui ne se préoccupe ni des différences, ni des races pour établir sa magie...
