Shen Zhao Er (Sun Qian) is the sole surviving relative of a powerful public servant who was framed and convicted of poisoning a royal consort – a crime he did not commit. Both he and his family were sentenced to death – but Shen Zhao Er managed to escape harm.
Now, seven years later, she is out for revenge.
In the time since her family’s death, she has trained to become a talented medic, and disguises herself as a physician named Tian Qi in order to gain access to the royal court.
She proves exceptionally talented in her role, and is selected to become the private doctor to the fiancée of the Emperor (played by Huang Jun Jie). The Emperor, however, finds himself strangely drawn to this new face at court…
But goings-on at the imperial court are never straightforward. Secretive cabals execute dastardly plans, and a series of murders means she must be ever-vigilant.
Will Shen Zhao Er bring the evil public servants who framed her father to justice? And can she survive the intrigue and scheming at court?
