Set in the revolutionary years of China in the 1930s, Withered in the Wind centres on a warlord family which reveals the fundamental conflicts of the feudal age: nationalism, freedom of love and the clash of western thoughts and the old traditions.
Tuan Yuk Ting is the adopted son of the warlord Tuan Yat Fu. Ting's upbringing in a feudal family forced him to end his love with the prostitute, Fork Hung Chui. Later, Tuan fell in love with a teacher Hon Sheung but met his father's opposition again. The love affair between his younger brother and the house-maid Ping Yee also failed.
Later Ting became friend of a revolutionary, Tse Tin San whom Ting found out that he was his twin brother. Ting was in a great dilemma. He could either inherit the warlord family or to side with Tin San to fight against his father. Painfully he had to take his stand.
