Feng Anning and Lin Anjing are half brothers with the same father. They have both inherited their father’s musical skills. Feng Anning’s mother arranged for him to study the Western flute while Lin Anjing has been learning to play the Chinese pipa from their father since he was young. During an important recital, Feng Anning who was the student leader cancelled Lin Anning’s solo performance. Lin Anjing opens up to Wei Lan about his feelings for her only to be rejected. He learns that she is in love with Feng Anning and it causes more cracks in the relationship between the two siblings.
To create more opportunities for her son, Lin Anjing’s mother repeatedly uses his father’s name to make connections and get ahead. Demoralized by the many setbacks in his life, Lin Anjing resigns himself to despair. Wei Lan and Feng Anning are determined to help him regain his confidence. Together, the brothers create a beautiful melody that brings out each of their uniqueness.
Ping An Ning and Lin An Jing are brothers from the same father but different mothers. Both inherited their father Lin Zhong Dao’s musical talent and end up falling for the same girl Wei Lan. While An Ning’s mother Ping Yi arranges for her son to study Western flute, An Jing follows in his father’s steps and learns how to play the classical flute Shakuhachi. At a concert abroad, student leader An Ning cancels An Jing’s solo performance, which puts the brothers’ good relationship to an end. When An Jing later confesses his love to Wei Lan, she rejects him because she has An Ning in her heart. Even more setbacks await An Jing thereafter until he becomes depressed and gives up on himself. An Ning and Wei Lan consequently try to get him back up on his feet.
