Yin Jing Wan asks Murong Feng, the son of Cheng Zhou's warlord, to free her fiancé Xu Jian Zhang after he's thrown into jail following a botched fire arms exchange. Feng initially rejects her plea, but ends up falling in love with her. Jing Wan too develops intense feelings for Feng, but tries to suppress them due to fear of being sucked into this dark, yet sweet vortex. However, on the day of her wedding to Jian Zhang, Jing Wan travels far and wide to be by Feng's side after hearing that Cheng Zhou is in grave danger. Unfortunately, Feng is forced to marry Cheng Jin Zhi, the daughter of a powerful general, in order to get her father's backing on the military front. Driven by the humiliation of losing Jing Wan, Jian Zhang is consumed by hatred and vows to destroy Feng at any cost, even if it means conspiring with Japanese invaders.
