The story takes place in 1911, the year of the Xinhai Revolution when the "storm" was brewing.

In the city of Putian, Fujian, there was a renowned woodcarving family called the Liao family, known for their exceptional craftsmanship.

Despite their recognized skills, the family members were burdened with their own concerns.

When the Liao family was about to deliver a set of three dragon throne pieces commissioned by Emperor Xuantong, they discovered that the dragon's eyes on the throne had been deliberately damaged, leaving them "eyeless." This brought upon the Liao family the imminent disaster of annihilation.

Liao Xi, the eldest son of the Liao family, stepped forward and courageously took the blame, using his ingenuity and clever ideas to recreate the dragon's pearls and quell the turmoil.

However, Liu Tianqiu, a treacherous individual who had coveted the Liuhe Hall for many years, repeatedly plotted against them.

To save his father, Liao Xi had no choice but to flee with the accusation on his shoulders.

On his journey of exile, he encountered Aunt Mei, a confidante. In order to revive the glory of the Liao family and make their exquisite woodcarving skills known to the world, Liao Xi and Mei Yi, skillfully navigated through various forces such as bureaucrats, warlords, and Japanese invaders, engaging in intellectual battles and writing a poignant ode to the spirit of craftsmanship.
