Zhang Xiao Jing (Lei Jiayin) is a military man during the Tang Dynasty. After he retired from the frontlines, he worked security and often crossed paths with bad people. Zhang Xiao Jing commits a severe infraction that lands him in jail. At this time, the Jing An Bureau discovers that a suspicious entity has infiltrated the city. Due to Zhang Xiao Jing's expertise and past connections, he is given the opportunity to be absolved of his crimes should he succeed in solving the case.
