Jian Hongcheng, the son of the Director of Linshui No.2 Agricultural Machinery Factory, falls in love at first sight with his university classmate Ning Yu. However he was constantly rejected, and only gave up on her when she graduated and got married. His father Jian Zhiguo was injured by his employee Cui Hao, and his health deteriorated, thus passing on the factory to him. In order to secure his son's contracting rights of the factory, Jian Zhiguo also forces his daughter Jian Minmin to marry his disciple Zhang Lixin, who temporarily took over as the head of the factory. However Zhang Lixin secretly fights for authority. After Jian Zhiguo passes away, Jian Hongcheng left his village.

There, he reunites with Ning Yu and finally finds out the reason why Ning Yu kept rejecting him - she is the daughter of Cui Hao. Jian Hongcheng uses his ways to solve the crisis at hand. However, Ning Yu's brother Ning Shu secretly kept making trouble for him. Jian Hongcheng and Ning Yu worked together to stop their illogical relatives.
