A relationship drama set in a small family compound in postwar China. The Dai family was once wealthy, but has been ruined by the war. Dai Liyan, the patriarch, is chronically ill. His wife Zhou Yuwen, dutifully takes care of him, but is bored with her drab life and loveless marriage. Onto this scene arrives Zhang Zhichen, a once close friend to Liyan, who arrives from Shanghai to stay as a guest for awhile. Unbeknownst to Liyan, he is also Yuwen's former sweetheart. Old passions are rekindled, and Yuwen is torn between her love for Zhichen, and loyalty to her husband.
