The film is set during the end of the Qing dynasty. A very strange event takes place in a village, and it turns a sleepy rural village's life upside down. The weapon can control people's minds, making them more agreeable. Also it can change people's attitudes, suddenly making people that someone disliked liked much. When a person wears it on his or her head, it works on his or her brain- it's as simple as using a computer mouse to delete unsightly photographs off a computer while keeping only the best.
