The dance program portrays the tragic love story between Wu Ding, a king of the Shang Dynasty (c. 16th century-11th century BC), and his queen Fu Hao, as indicated in the oracle bone script. In the story, Fu Hao assumes multifaceted identities: the high priestess, the military general, the mother of the heir and an honorable queen.

The well-developed character displays how female power can change the course of history. With the help of XR technology, dancers perform on Fu Hao bronze owl-shaped zun.

The show provides a glimpse into Fu Hao's life and how the king and the warrior-queen became husband and wife, who were eventually separated by death.
