'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes

This is the story of the ancient Chinese poet, Wen Long's search for his male beloved. He has been shown in a dream that there is a legend whereby true loves are fastened together by a red cord however far apart they may be. Many and dangerous are the adventures he encounters and occasionally he is almost led astray.


But this story, as illustrated on an antique Chinese fan is interpreted by an antique dealer who is trying to sell the fan to a customer. Thus events happening back in the Tang Dynasty under the Empress Wu are not always as they seem. The story is divided between what actually happens and the dealer's comments. There is also a twist in the tale.
