Chinese-born Mei lives in London with adoptive parents Jim and Katherine, while studying astrophysics at university. Out of the blue she gets a message from journalist Pan Qiyani back in China and learns that, under the reprehensible former policy whereby families were restricted to having one child her mother Liu Ying gave her away as she already had a son Ajun. Now Liu Ying needs her help as Ajun, the brother Mei has never met, has been accused of murder during a club brawl to which he was a witness. Returning to China Mei is told that the real killer is Guan Xiaopeng, scion of a wealthy family keen to pay to pervert the course of justice. Visiting Ajun in prison Mei bonds with him but feels unable to help in any way. Nonethelss she agrees to stay in China.
