Xirong and Beidi are two countries that invade China; both are defeated by Marshal Meng Feixiong. Learning from a captive that the invasion was caused by Chinese Princess Fengxia’s ill treatment of ambassadors from these countries, Feixiong reports this to the emperor and suggests him to punish the princess.
When the sassy princess refuses to apologize, Feixiong advises the emperor to have her cape flogged instead; the emperor follows his advice. Appreciating his abilities, the emperor marries Princess Fengxia to the marshal in hopes that the marshal will turn the princess into a dutiful wife and loving mother.
On the wedding day, Fengxia seeks revenge by asking Feixiong to greet her by kneeling at the door.Feixiong refuses, and they quarrel in public. In indignation, she asks her father to punish Feixiong by making him monk.
The princess later regrets her decision and goes to Cheng'en Monastery to bring Feixiong back. The princess arrives just before Feixiong’s shaving ceremony. After the reunion, the couple lives in happy harmony.
