2000 years ago, the Qin Emperor is at the height of his tyranny, spurring a revolution led by the noble families. Beyond the battlefields, citizens lie hungry and homeless in the streets. Pushed to the edges by their fate, these hopeless individuals dream of becoming more than they really are. Liu Bang is one of these people. Our story begins with the intertwining fates of Liu Bang and Xiang Yu, two key figures in the rebellion against the Qin, and two men who both longed for the infinite power and wealth that lay within the imperial palace. Only one can survive.
