At the end of the Eastern Han Dynasty, the world was in turmoil. Cao Mengde, a lord of his generation, made a name for himself among the warlords.
He took the embattled Emperor Liu Xie to Xudu and ordered the lords in the name of the Emperor, but gradually grew a disobedient heart.
In the meantime, Prime Minister Cao was looking for talented and virtuous people, from Xun Yu in the early days to Xun You and Yang Xiu in the later years, to showcase their talents.
At this time, Sima Yi, the second Mister of the Sima family in Henei, kept his name in obscurity, preferring to break his own leg to avoid Cao Cao’s recruitment.
Later, at the earnest invitation of Cao Pi, he became a member of Cao Pi’s staff.
Cao Pi and his young brother Cao Zhi fight for the position of the Lord, while their respective staff members Sima Yi and Yang Xiu are also involved in a series of battles.
After the Battle of Guandu and the Battle of Red Cliff, the old heroes fall into disgrace, and a new generation of wise warriors will continue their fatalistic struggle in the unfinished chaos of the world.
