At the Flower Festival, Liu Yueying falls in love with Bian Ji at first sight. Chunlan, her maid, helps match them, but servant Meng Liu sends the invitation letter by mistake to Zhou Tong, a rogue, instead of Bian Ji. Chunlan comes by boat at night to visit Bian Ji and advises him to dress as a woman when visiting Yueying. As Yueying can't finish Bian Ji's embroidered shoes in time, Chunlan gets a pair of new shoes from Madame Liu by a trick.
By mistake, Zhou Tong grabs Bian Ji home when Bian Ji sneaks in Yueying’s house as a flower-girl. Fortunately, Bian Ji flees before the wedding night and goes for the imperial examination. A year later, Zhou Tong comes for Yueying again and finds that the bride Liu Jialing took away is in fact his sister Zhou Yulou. Meanwhile, Bian Ji comes home as the top scorer in the imperial examination. After teaching Zhou Tong a lesson and expressing his gratitude to Chunlan for being his match-maker, Bian Ji and Yueying become a happy couple finally.
