A little girl in rags scavenges for food among corpses on a battlefied. An older boy, the son of the commander of the troops she is looting, catches her and offers her a deal: if she agrees to be his slave, he will let her keep her findings. The little girl accepts but breaks THE PROMISE immediately, fleeing with the food to find her mother. The Goddess Manshen (CHEN HONG) appears and tells the girl that her mother no longer has any use for the morsels - she is dead. The goddess then presents the girl with a fantastic proposition. She will lead a pampered life as a celebrated beauty, adored and kept by the most powerful in return for a small sacrifice: every man she loves, she will lose. The girl accepts.
