My heart pumps not for the past but for this moment.
A Taoist by the name of Yan Chihsia leaves a mountain to practice Taoism. In the Renru Temple, he runs into Nie Xiaoqian and Sia Siaoyao, two female ghosts who use their beauty to trap and kill men who stay overnight at the temple. A kind-hearted scholar by the name of Ning Caichen passes by the Renru Temple on his way to a civil examination and is discovered by Sia. Nie hopes that Ning can help her free herself from the control of the Tiger demon so that she can be reincarnated. Ning accepts Nie's request, but Yan is irritated by this. Yan believes that Nie is plotting revenge on Ning for breaking her heart in their previous life and that the story told by Nie is to trick Ning to be trapped and killed by the Tiger demon.
