His death leaves his only son, Yang Wen as the only male heir left to the Yang family. His widow, Mu Kuei Ying, the grand matriarch and the entire family set out to avenge his death and defend the country. Due to the interference of a corrupt official, Wang Ching, the Yangs were unable to have the Emperor's consent to use the imperial army. Thus, they set off with whatever volunteer troops they could muster.

They are outsmarted at the end as Kuei Ying, the Yang family and Song soldiers successfully storm their stronghold.
