The wind blows away Li Saam-neong’s handkerchief and leads her to the stable, where she encounters the down-and-out Lau Chi-yuen. Regardless of Chi-yuen’s poverty, her father approves their marriage. However, instigated by his wife, Saam-neong’s brother, Hung-yat forces Chi-yuen to divorce Saam-neong after the death of their parents. This leads to the separation of the Li’s family. Hung-yat allocates the poor melon field to Saam-neong as her share of their parents’ legacy. Unexpectedly, Chi-yuen gets a sword and a book on military strategy in the melon demon infested field and he determines to join the army. This leaves Saam-neong no choice but to live with Hung-yat’s family. Being maltreated, Saam-neong has to bite the umbilical cord off by herself in her delivery. Taking pity on his sister, Hung-shun volunteers to take the newborn baby to look for his father. Hung-shun arrives at Jiuzhou and reunites the father and son. Ngok Sau-ying, daughter of the Marshal, loves Chi-yuen but he loves his wife. Chi-yuen matches Sau-ying with Hung-shun instead. Years later, Chi-yuen is ennobled and returns to his homeland with his son Ngau Ci-long. While hunting for a hare, Ngau Ci-long comes across Saam-neong by a well. However, the mother and son don’t know each other. Learning Saam-neong’s news from his son, Chi-yuen sets out to meet his wife and gives Saam-neong a gold seal. Seeing Saam-neong’s gold seal and Chi-yuen’s prestigious status, Hung-yat and his wife try hard to flatter them but are reproached by Chi-yuen. Ngau Ci-long reunites with his family finally.
