Synopsis and Plot Summary

Another chapter in the Candle in the Tomb series tells the story of Hu Bayi and his tomb-raiding adventures.

Set in the 1980s, Hu Bayi (Ethan Ruan), a famous middle-aged tomb expert, is packing his things for a trip abroad when he stumbles upon an old photo. It brings back memories of his college days back in the 1960's with his two best friends Wang Kaixuan (Ryan Liu Chao) and Ding Sitian (Hao Hao) along with the eccentric but tough as nails Hua Mei (Xu Lu). He then reminisced the time they first met and their subsequent adventures as they raided tombs.
