In the early years of the Republic of China, the Jianghu artists, represented by grandfather Ba Xian, were determined to keep the secret of a thousand-year-old treasure, but they were struggling to make a living, hoping to change their lives and live like ordinary people.

However, the warlords, led by Fang Yuanji, were interested in the secret of the treasure and persecuted them by all means.

Hua Minchu, a student returning from overseas, came from a wealthy family, but had a heart for the suffering of the people, and wanted to serve his country and prosper.

On the train back to China, he accidentally got involved in a conspiracy by Fang Yuanji and eventually joined forces with the artists to fight against the conspirators' shocking deception.

What was more surprising to artists is that in the process, Hua Minchu led the group of Jianghu artists to escape from the existing rigid rules and shackles and found a better way out, living an ordinary life.
