The story takes place during the chaotic times of Northern Wei, where innocent citizens are often kidnapped and turned into slaves. Slave girl, Chu Qiao (Zhao Liying) is thrown into a forest along with other slaves and becomes the next hunting target for the rich lords. She is saved by the Prince of Northern Yan, Yan Xun (Shawn Dou) and Yuwen Yue.
Afterwards, she is brought into a powerful family of Yuwen and witnesses their bloody power struggle. Seeing this, she swears to take her younger sisters and flee from the situation. However, she catches the attention of Yuwen Yue (Lin Gengxin) and undergoes strict training while building a sense of companionship with Yan Xun. Unfortunately, the schemes of the nobles in Western Wei cause Yan Xun’s family to be slaughtered and branded as traitors.
After that incident, Yan Xun becomes ambitious and cruel as he promises to take revenge for the things and the people he lost. He later starts to doubt Chu Qiao and takes advantages of her loyalty many times, disregarding their close-knitted friendship as well as the sacrifices he will have to make for power. Disappointed with the man she once trusted, Chu Qiao eventually breaks off her ties with Yan Xun and chooses to fight with Yuwen Yue to destroy Yan Xun’s plans of vengeance.
