Lip Dor Po is a martial art expert who signs up as an imperial bodyguard in the Palace. Dor Po is a righteous man and is always fighting for the rights of his people.

Dor Po eventually befriends Prince Yu (Fook Chuen) who is the brother of the Emperor. Under the recomendation of Prince Yu, who is also Dor Po's superior, Dor Po becomes the personal bodyguard of Emperor Kang Xi.

Dor Po never imagined that the Palace would be full of backstabbings and plots. He also does not know that Fook Chuen is plotting an earth shattering scheme against the Emperor. As Dor Po spends more time with the Emperor, his loyalty is tested - should he remain loyal to his friend and benefactor, Fook Chuen, or Emperor Kang Xi who has a generous heart and loves his country deeply.

In the midst of all the chaos, Dor Po falls for Cheuk Tse Ying, the daughter of a herb merchant. However, Tse Ying ends up being entwined in the web of power struggle among the imperial concubines.

As Dor Po finds himself surrounded by friends and foes, who are constantly plotting and scheming, he has no choice but to trust no one and trust only in himself.
