Telling a story in ancient times though, the drama reflects the complexity of human emotions and feelings in modern times. It explores all possibility after one is killed by her lover, and proposes a puzzle of love which neither ancient nor modern people can solve. Zou once said the drama had post-modern features and discussed people's feelings through a play-within-play way of presentation. It warns modern people that multi-possibilities and different choices may cause varied consequences.
