Synopsis and Plot Summary

In 1941 Shanghai, a man captures the attention of the Japanese due to his resemblance to a BIS spy. He gets pulled into the dangerous world of espionage yet through the influence of another, he realizes his responsibilites as a citizen of his country and throws himself into the anti-occupation efforts.

Chen Shan (Zhang Ruoyun) makes a living on the streets by trading intelligence. Because he resembles BIS operative Xiao Zhengguo, Japanese spy leader Huang Muwei (Wang Zhenglong) kidnaps Chen Shan's sister Chen Xia (Luo Qiuyun) so that he will have no choice but to do their bidding. To save her, Chen Shan undergoes special training and proves to be an exceptional spy.

Assuming Xiao Zhengguo's identity, Chen Shan infiltrates the BIS headquarters in Chongqing and starts a mission where one small misstep could cost his life. As a Chinese citizen, Chen Shan never really wanted to betray his motherland. He meets Zhang Li (Wang Ou), a woman with firm beliefs and slowly turns into a man who is willing to give up even his own life for the sake of his country.
