The little girl (Cai Yue also known as Yue Shen) decides to live with her father - he is known to be the best swordsman there is. Xiao Li Fei Dao challenges him to a duel, but before that duel the little girls father was blinded and subsequently killed in the duel with Xiao Li Fei Dao. When Cai Yue found out that her father died (before he went to fight Xiao Li Fei Dao he promised his daughter that he would come back.) Cai Yue was angered by the death of her father and wanted revenge. Xiao Li Fei Dao found out that his son was Li Huai (a beggar). So he decided to give Li Huai the secrets to the famous kung fu - "Xiao Li Fei Dao". Li Huai took that and his mothers will and decided to leave the Li house (he did not want to be in that family.) Years later Cai Yue thought that she was good enough to fight Xiao Li Fei Dao (Li Huai's dad). She went to his house and challenged him. Written by
The obvious ending of course is the where Yue Shen finds Li Huai in Japan, and they hug and finish. They live happily ever-after.
BUT if you realize, the ending scenes are partially in Black and White. Black & White is often used to symbolize dreams or superficial thoughts, also when she sees Li Huai the song plays exactly at the part song words"seek, seek, even if I have found; it is merely in my dreams".
Hence the multiple ending could be explained as such...
Everything she saw in Japan was nothing but in her dreams ... Li Huai had died, if there was a scene to follow; Li Huai would disappear from her arms, all the kites around the house would also disappear, and the house would be nothing but an abandoned ruin. Everything she saw there was what she wanted to see ... it was a dream.
After death she only holds one hope. song words 'That the sins of the past life, will be repeated in the this life' I didn't like the ending at first until I realized this concept, and it actually turns out to be a pretty good ending. People who love happy endings will watch it as a happy ending and people who prefer a more dramatic ending can watch it as a sad ending.
