The story set in the Song Dynasty more than 1000 years ago. A famous patriotic poet Lu You and his wife Tang Wan (who is also good at literature) lovingly live in Sheng's Garden, Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province. Hating treacherous court officials endangering the realm, on spring outing day the husband and wife are planning to go to Fu Jian Province to unite righteous friends who are loyal to the kingdom, but Lu You's mother opposes their plan as she does not wish her son to leave for thousand miles beyond, and she also does not like Tang Wan very much as the couple do not have a child after several year marriage. She asks Zhong Gao, a newly appointed official, to arrange a future for her son. However Lu You, hating Zhong's attachment to the treacherous court officials, composes ironic poems to satirize him, thus making him furious. Later Madame Lu's pressure and Zhong Gao's charge against Tang Wan results in her being driven out. Lu You hires a flower girl sending a message to Tang Wan that he promises reunion in three years. Three years later, Lu You keeps his word and returns to hometown. When he passed by Sheng's Garden, he run into Tang Wan and her husband by chance, and his heart was broken. Regretting his divorce with her, Lu You wrote the poem "Phoenix Hairpin" on the wall of Sheng's Garden within one breath. Meanwhile, reading his poem, Tang Wan immediately wrote one in the same form with the same grief.
Talented, beautiful, moving and graceful
Long and short verses describing love regretful
Poetic masterpieces through ages
Sad voices echo everlasting hatreds
