Will Bai Su Zhen, the white snake demon, and her love, Xu Xian, ever be free of the meddling monk? (Part Two of the myth of the white snake).



Xu Xian had just received an invitation to the opening ceremony of a new temple. His wife, Bai Su Zhen, warned him not to attend, but Xu Xian, a devout Buddhist, felt obligated to make an appearance. What they didn't know was that these invitations had come from Fa Hai, the monk determined to separate them. Can the young lovers ever escape the monk's meddling? Shunan Teng shares this Chinese myth.

Lesson by Shunan Teng, directed by Kino Bino.
