Synopsis and Plot Summary

During the reign of Yongzheng Emperor, a woman whose first love marries another finds herself having to navigate the political machinations within the palace on her own.

Lian Er (Yuan Shanshan), the daughter of a 4th ranking public official, meets the 17th Royal Highness Yun Li (Du Chun) on her father's behalf. The two fall in love and plan to marry. However, Yun Li ends up having to marry his teacher's daughter Jia Jia (Hai Lu) because it is the only way to save him. Devastated, Lian Er treads carefully as she tries to survive within the palace walls.

Unwilling to be swept along the tide of politics, Li Wei (Wang Yang) wants to form an alliance with her. The head eunuch Su Peisheng (Bao Bei'er) wants to return a debt to her. Yu Shu (Zhang Jiani) who is like a sister to her becomes her enemy. The extravagant palace hides many dangers that threaten to swallow her whole. Lian Er inadvertently catches the eye of Yongzheng Emperor (He Mingshan) and she realizes that things become even more complicated.
