In the third year of the Jianwen era, Wang Kegong from Jinan brought his wealth to Nanjing. Li Wu, a small thief from Ji'e Lane, stole the name card of Li Dongfang, a commander of the Imperial Guards, and sneaked into Wang Kegong's mansion with the dream of stealing treasures and becoming rich overnight.
However, there were hidden currents in Kegong's mansion, and Li Wu was forced into a struggle over the Yuming Lock, which related to weapons from the previous dynasty.
Li Wu, who was originally an outsider, became the owner of the Yuming Lock and was caught in the center of the vortex.
As a child, Song Zhen, who rescued Li Wu from prison, has now become a member of the Imperial Guards, and he and Li Wu are colleagues who do not recognize each other.
Shu Tang, a girl who was once imprisoned with Li Wu, has become an assassin and spy, and she and Li Wu have become a spy couple, working together to complete their missions.
The darkness and cruelty of the political struggles put their relationships to the test. When the moment of change of the dynasty arrives, all the battles and unsolved mysteries will come to an end.
