Emperor Qin Shi Huang dispatched a group of men and women on a quest to find an elixir that would grant him immortality. When they found it, Dong Er fed it to the man she loved, Meng Tian Fang. The furious Emperor sentenced Dong Er to death and encased Meng in clay as a terracotta warrior.
Thousands of years later, Dong Er reincarnated as an actress wannabe in the early 1900's. When her attempt to land a movie part landed her inside the excavation of the terracotta army, she awoken Meng from his buried state. Meng struggled to adjust to the 1900's and to rekindle their past love.
