Summary
  Late in the Qin Dynasty, the government was corrupted and the citizens' lives were difficult. Having escaped to America in his childhood and receiving an education there, missionary Charlie Soong rose to wealth due to investments. He had 3 sons and 3 daughters, all of whom grew up under his wholeheartedly care, no matter if they were boys or girls. His three sons became important officials in the new Republic respectively and quickly rose to power; his three daughters Oi Ling, Hing Ling, and Mei Ling didn't let up either, as each held her own goals and separately married the three most important men in China at the time.
