In earlier times and not very long ago, girls born to traditional Chinese families were deprived of privileges and opportunities reserved for males. Most of them accepted their fate dutifully and submissively.

But one woman of those oppressed times dared defy the hand she was dealt. Opportunist, manipulator, ambitious, she desired power to control her own destiny above all else. This is the story of an unconventional woman of extraordinary will and determination who seized control of her fate at all costs!
