During the reign of Wenzong at the end of the Tang Dynasty, the eunuchs hold a dictatorship. Tang Wen Zong and Wang Ya, Li Xun, Zheng Zhu and others set up the “Nectar Plan” in an attempt to punish the eunuch Chou Shi Liang, but unfortunately fails.
Prime minister Wang Ya is convicted, but two granddaughters manage to escape. The younger sister is adopted by Shang Gong Yuxi of the Ziyi Bureau and changes her name to Cheng Ruo Yu. Her sister becomes determined to take revenge and changes her name to Yan Zhi to become Chou Shi Liang’s adopted daughter.
