When the treasure of Fuso, the precious golden lotus, is lost in the human realm, the great matriarch of the clan wastes no time in dispatching a trio of foxes to find it. Tasked with returning the precious treasure to its rightful home, the red fox, Hong Xiao, the white fox, Qing Cheng and the black fox, Ye Sang, descend into the world of men. Searching high and low for the lost lotus, it doesn’t take long for them to realize it has attached itself to a traveling doctor by the name of Zhang Huai Sheng.
In order to retrieve their lost treasure, the three foxes agree to use their wiles to charm Huai Sheng, hoping their efforts will provide the distraction they need to retrieve the lotus and return home. But even the best-laid plans can go awry. As the trio of foxes gets closer to Huai Sheng, the memories of a long-forgotten past begin to emerge. Realizing their fates have long been entwined, Huai Sheng and the foxes struggle to make sense of the memories of their past and the conflicted feelings of the present. Meanwhile, the sly silver fox, Chen Xiang, appears with plans to take the Fuso treasure for his own.
As the foxes begin to unravel the mysteries of their twisted fate, their beloved matriarch seizes the opportunity to reveal her long-concealed plans. With the lotus in her possession, she intends to control the world. Realizing only they have the power to stop her, Hong Xiao, Qing Cheng, and Ye Sang must decide between saving that which they love most or saving the world.
