In a military art troupe filled with ideals and passion, a group of young individuals in the prime of their youth experience the blossoming of love and the unpredictable twists and turns of life's destiny.
Liu Feng, who is helpful, simple, and kind-hearted, and He Xiaoping, who comes from the countryside and has been discriminated against and excluded by the female soldiers in the art troupe, unexpectedly leave the romantic and comfortable art troupe and become embroiled in a brutal war, continuing to shine with their youth stained in blood on the battlefield.
They experience the pains and warmth of collective life, the farewells and reunions with acquaintances, and the insignificance, vulnerability, and powerlessness of individuals in the face of era-changing.
Meanwhile, their former comrades in the art troupe, Xiao Suizi, Lin Dingding, Hao Shuwen, Chen Can, and others, each have vastly different destinies against the backdrop of the great era, with surprising outcomes in their lives.
