Not long after the marriage, Changzong has to leave for the imperial exam. Their neighbour, Zhang Luer, who has always long for the charming Dou'e, sees it as a chance. He sabotages the bridge so Changzong would fall when he crosses it so Luer can ends him for good, hoping to replace him as Dou'e husband. But Dou'e refuses and stating she must take care of the mother of her gone husband. So Zhang Luer thinks the mother he must also ends, hence he poisons the soup of theirs. But by accident, it ends up killing his own mother, so he switches the plan and frames Changzong's mother for it. Dou'e can't find a way to prove her innocent, so she just steps up and takes the blame. An eye for an eye, the penalty for murdering is to be executed.


On the day of the execution, a day in the hot summer, the sky turns gray and snow falls hard...
