Mrs. Tang is the matriarch of an illustrious and influential family whose cold-blooded decisions have earned her brood a powerful place in society. Scheming with a set of politicians, Mrs. Tang plans to secure a prized real estate deal. But this plot turns complicated as her daughters unravel the truth, one ignorant of their mother's machinations and another following in her footsteps.
