This series takes place in the Ming Dynasty. Three scholars in Suzhou are getting ready to compete. They are Tong Bak Fu, Chook Chi San and Mun Jing Ming. The three are competing with another group of scholars. Bak Fu and his friends had already won two rounds. They are heading for the third. Jing Ming won the first round while Chi San lost the second round by accidently tossing his shoe at the opponent. Now it's up to Bak Fu to win.
