During the 6th year of the Qianlong's reign, Wei Yingluo (Wu Jin Yan) finds her way to the Forbidden City as a palace maid to investigate the truth behind her older sister's death. She vows to exact justice after learning that Hong Zhou (Hong Yao) is connected to the case. The kind and gentle Empress Xiaoxianchun (Qin Lan) worries that Wei Yingluo would tread on a path of no return, so she does everything in her power to help Yingluo and to be her pillar of support. Under the Empress' guidance, Yingluo becomes a female official and starts to let go of her hatred. However, the Empress dies an untimely death.
