A young woman who has lost her memory is helped by a snake catcher. In their quest to find her identity, while overcoming multiple dangerous obstacles, they gradually develop feelings for each other—but just as the truth comes close, disaster looms… This story is a prequel to the famous Chinese folktale “Legend of the White Snake,” and puts a twist on the shape-shifting white-snake story by taking place before she meets her human lover. Embarking on a journey into the fantasy world of wuxia romance, the huge box-office success White Snake surely sets a new golden age for animated Chinese cinema.
