Fang Lin, a Confucian student in Quanjiao county, was framed by Wu Song, his rival for the affections of lovely Xiao Yue. After that event, Fang Lin chose to immerse himself in study and teaching while trying to forget his tragic past.
He is pushed to reemerge by four young people seeking justice in a township trial fraud case that might involve his old rival, Wu Song. Vowing to not back down this time, Fang Lin joins hands with Prefect Xu Tianyou in a quest to unravel a web of conspiracy. Perhaps in the process, he will avenge himself on the unrighteous.
