Robin, a modern 21st Century women accidentally falls to her death after finding out that her fiancé had cheated months away from their wedding.
But the absurd thing is that she didn't go to heaven or hell like we presume to happen to us after we pass away. Instead, she appears in the T'ang Dynasty where she then mysteriously transforms into Zhang Xuelei , a mere 16-year-old girl who happens to be selected to be one of the many concubines for the very unhappy Emperor who seems to be colder than ice.
Xuelei quickly catches the eyes of many individuals. Some who desire her as a woman, and some who want to ruin her and won't stop until she's dead.
But as love seems to poke Xuelei at every angle, there's also danger lingering around from the many jealous concubines, including the new Empress herself.
Will Xuelei capture the heart of the Emperor, making him love once, again, and become Empress? Or will she die while trying? Or will she throw it all away and choose to run away with another man who she isn't even supposed to love?
