Ren Yingying is cult leader Ren Woxing's only daughter. Although she is intelligent and caring towards her subordinates, she can be ruthless and cold blooded at times. She meets Linghu Chong, who eventually becomes an outcast of the orthodox sect, in a bamboo hut located in a suburb of millennial metropolis Luoyang while in disguise as a zither-playing granny, and falls in love with him after being deeply moved by his chivalrous behavior, steadfastness in adversity and especially the valuable unorthodox frankness. Disillusioned and exhausted by all the cruel and bloody power struggles whirling around year after year, they deliberately retires to lead a reclusive life together, performing the divine musical piece composed and left by their beloved killed swordsmen with zither and flute in harmony. In a word, they manage to live a carefree life in a mundane world of strife.
