Mr. Gao's three sons by his first wife are all oppressed by the feudal ethical code of the time. eldest son Gao Junxin is an extremely weak man. Not daring to show displeasure or speak out, he gives in to his family's demands and agrees to marry Li Ruiyu, although he really loves a girl called Miss Mei.
