In an Imperial Court in ancient China, a few months have passed since a 17-year-old girl known as Maomao was kidnapped and forced to work as a low-ranking servant for the emperor’s palace. She still manages to maintain her curious and pragmatic spirit, planning to work until her years of servitude are over. One day, however, she realizes that two of the emperor’s sons have fallen seriously ill, so she decides to act in secret, using her experience as a pharmacist raised in a slum.

Despite Maomao’s efforts to remain anonymous, she soon catches the eye of Jinshi, an influential eunuch who recognizes her talent.
