A young woman’s solace lies in the hands of a stranger.
A curse is a way to a man’s freedom.
The enemy holds the key to the future.
Mei Yanli is in big trouble. She fails to save a counterrevolutionary friend, her boss accuse her of being a fox woman and she meets Christian Martin, a success-driven and self-indulgent American imperialist who comes to her life apparently for no other reason than to compromise her reputation.
Yet, thanks to her fox woman’s special abilities, Mei soon realizes that there is more to Christian that meets the eye. She discovers a deep-buried secret, an old curse and a shocking way to free him from the dreadful spell.
This revelation creates a very special bond between them. He ‘digs her out of a hole’ and they decide to team up together, helping each other in their endeavors. And while Christian relishes to his newfound freedom, Mei sees the opportunity to fulfill her political ambitions.
But little does she know there’s a price to pay for heaving a dream when she becomes entangled in a web of intrigue that holds the key to her future…or her ultimate downfall.
