    The story of the movie "The Battle of Penghu" takes place in 1683 AD. At that time, separatist elements within the Zheng Clan in Taiwan were pressing forward step by step. After Emperor Kangxi sent people for peace talks many times without success, he resolutely ordered Shi Lang to lead the Fujian navy to cross the river to the east and fight a decisive battle in Penghu, which ultimately laid the foundation for the Qing army's expedition to Taiwan.
