When their father died five years ago, Pei Shi (Go Joon-hee) and her brother Pei Qu (Wang Si Yao) were adopted by Yan ShengJiao. Pei Shi slowly became close with Yan ShengJiao's son, Ke Ze (Zhu Yi Long). Along with this, she also became a competitor of Xia Na (Song Yi), Ke Ze's admirer. Due to Pei Shi's talent and skills in playing the violin, those who envied her broke her left hand, thus destroying her musical journey. With no one left to go to, Pei Shi finds Ke Ze, but instead, she sees how he has betrayed her.

Pei Shi helps an amateur, Han YueYue (Guo Zi Qian), get into the musical industry. As Ke Ze once again sees Pei Shi, his feelings for her return. Miraculously, Pei Shi's left hand heals and she can now play the violin like before, however, she has lost the true meaning of music and has her heart set on defeating Xia Na. Xia ChengSi's unconditional support and guidance along Pei Shi's side melts her cold heart, allowing her to grasp the true meaning of music, just as how she did before.
