Princess Pearl of Flowerland is sent to Midland at a young age to learn
her ceremonials duties. Her mother, the Queen Mother misses her daughter
very much that the King orders his sister, the princess, to return home.
However, the princess has fallen in love with General Wing of the Midland
army and is reluctant to part from him. As their boat approaches the Flowerland
border, Pearl and Wing save the life of a girl named Ying, who seeks to
throw herself into the sea after running away from an arrange marriage.
Pearl, Wing and Ying are attacked by pirates and Pearl falls overboard
in the ensuing chaos. On arrival in Flowerland, the King mistakes Ying
for his sister, while Pearl is saved by Ying's father, Million.
Million is poverty stricken. He intends to force his daughter to honor
the promise to marry the son (Chuen) of the literary minister Wu so that
he can obtain gifts of money. Million realizes that Pearl is not his daughter,
but as she is suffering from amnesla, he adopts the girl and takes her
to see Wu. Wu's eldest daughter, Yau, is hot-tempered and practical woman.
When she realizes Million has fallen on hard times, she immediately refuses
to let them stay in their houses. Finally Wu agrees to let them stay in
the servants' quarters until Chuen returns from the Imperial Examination
to make his decision about marriage. Meanwhile, on the way to the Imperial
Examination, Chuen meets and falls in love with Ying. He rejects Pearl
and Wu is required to pay compensation to Million for the broken engagement.
Taking advantage of the situation, Million asks for one million taels
as compensation but Yau counters with just one tael.
In the palace, the King decides to select a prince consort for the princess.
Wing realizes Ying is not who she says is and seeks Pearl. During his
search, he meets Chuen and Yau. Yau is attracted to Wing and Chuen creates
the opportunities for his sister by inviting Wing to stay in their house.
At their house, Wing encounters Pearl, but she does not recognize him.
Million discovers that Pearl is pregnant and reaches a hasty agreement
on the compensation price with Yau. To hide her pregnancy, Pearl is dressed
as a man, but meets the King in this guise. The King feels such a strong
affinity with the male Pearl that he proposes to make her prince consort.
However, Wu also hope Chuen to become prince consort and arranges for
him to enter the selection process as a contender.
