This Chinese period drama series follows the fortunes of a prominent merchant family engaged in Traditional Chinese Medicine during the waning years of the Ching dynasty. The affairs of this family of doctors/pharmacists (which in those days were one and the same) are intimately linked with social upheavals of the time such as the encroachment of Christian missionaries and foreign imperialism as well as conflicts that inevitably emerge in a large upper class family. Comparable in scope and production value to such recent titles as the American show "Downton Abbey", the lives and character of both masters and servants intertwine in plot lines that spans more than a generation.

The bomb of Family epics. Showcased the era. Interesting characters and charismatic leads. Great character interaction and growth. Plenty of heart. This is the fine silk woven in house by a generation long design house. If you get what I mean haha

Set design and sound is realistic to the era.
