In the early 1940s, when the Shaoxing opera artists Zhu Chunhua and Xing Yuehong are performing, they are persecuted by local vicious power. Master Xing asks them to stay true to their opera cause and rule of life before passing away.
Three years later, Chunhua and Yuehong become celebrities in Shanghai. Chunhua remains down-to-earth but Yuehong grows steadily more materialistic and is married to the theatre owner Manager Tang. Chunhua is prepared to re-appropriate Lu Xun’s novel The New Year Sacrifice, but is vandalised by reactionary forces. Yuehong is finally awakened after experiencing abuses by Manager Tang. The sisters get reunited on the stage and sing the Butterfly Lovers together.
