But one day, he disappears and does not return. She never gets to find out the reason for his disappearance. This happens often in Shanghai at the time.

One day, Mr. Cheng returns, introducing to Qiyao a young man who is addicted to the lifestyle of old Shanghai. Regardless of the age difference, Qiyao and the young man fall in love with each other.
