During the Northern Song period (960-1127), the Liao army invades Song territory. The Song Emperor appoints Pan Renmei as commander and Yang Jiye as vanguard to repel the Liao army. Renmei is a traitor and colludes with the Liao State to cut down Yang Jiye. Besieged in Lianglang Mountain, Yang sends seventh son Yiansi to break the siege and ask for reinforcements. The Liao soldiers give chase, and luckily for Yiansi, Du Yanzhen, a woman hunter in the mountain, rescues him. They fall in love and become betrothed.

Yansi returns to the Song camp amid dangers to ask for reinforcements, but Pan accuses him of desertion and kills him with numerous arrows to the heart. Without the reinforcements, the Song soldiers all perish in battle. Jiye kills himself by banging his head against Li Ling's stele to show his loyalty. When Yanzhao learns of his brother Yansi's unwarranted death as well as his father's in battle, he realises it is Renmei's doing, and files a complaint with the emperor in the capital in indignation. As the emperor's favourite concubine is Pan Renmei's daughter, he tries his best to protect the Pan family. After a persistent request from the Yang family, and the help from Duke Baxian who offers his imperial gold tablet as a guarantee, a trial is to be held in the capital with Kou Zhun as the judge.

Kou Zhun is determined to clear the Yang family of any wrongdoing, but the Emperor gives secret orders time and again to curb the trial. Lady Pan the royal concubine also hatches secret plots to thwart Kou's efforts in indicting her father. Then Duke Baxian and Yang Lingpo come up with a stratagem: Du Yanzhen will use a trick to extract Pan Renmei's proof of treason in prison. With the proof before him, Pan cannot but admit his crime. The Yang family's great wrong is righted and their named celebrated by posterity.
