On his way to the capital for the civil service examinations, He Wenxiu and his wife Wang Lanying cross paths with the town bully Zhang Tang in Haining.
Wrongfully framed by Zhang, the couple is forced apart, not knowing the other’s life and death.
Fortunately for Wenxiu, he meets the righteous De Wangyi who secretly frees him. Three years later, He Wenxiu changes his name to Wang Cha and becomes a government official.
Dressed in plain clothes, he makes an inspection of Haining to gather information. He finds out that Lanying was saved by Aunt Yang and is now staying with her.
Wenxiu secretly arranges for Lanying to seek redress at the yamen. Supported by the public’s wrath towards the tyranic Zhang Tang, He Wenxiu sentenced Zhang to be executed. The couple finally reunites.
