Having reached marriageable age, the dragon Zhu Hong is sent up the mountain to search for the phoenix egg holding his future spouse. But Zhu Hong soon has to realize that he is unable to find a destined one. Unwilling to bring shame to the Elder that raised him, Zhu Hong makes a daring bet: He takes an egg he feels no connection to, reckoning that where romantic love isn’t possible, loyalty and responsibility will allow them to carve out a blissful life together.
When the adult phoenix Zhen Zhu finally hatches and the wedding ceremony is held, Zhu Hong’s feelings are not the only ones relevant any longer though. Will their marriage work out as intended or will the dragon be made to regret his decision?
