During Emperor Kangxi’s reign, Yu Chenglong, the newly appointed Inspector of Fujian, finds that his predecessor imprisoned thousands of innocent people for“collusion with pirates and bandits.” To remedy the wrong conviction, he orders
a retrial for the old cases and lowers the people’s taxes and corvee. Yu tries every means to submit proposals to Prince Kang who resides in Fujian for official business. He fearlessly combats against Le Chun, Ka Lin and other corrupt officials. With his integrity and incorruptibility, Yu wins support from Prince Kang and other colleagues, and safeguards the peaceful and prosperous life of people in Fujian.
