Under the auspices of the Beike Corporation, Fang Xin’s software had met with great success in the Chinese market.

Despite knowing the fame and power of the company behind her, Fang Xin refused. Soon, piece by piece, his life fell apart. First a lawsuit from Xie Hong, then a growing mistrust from his wife Xiaoyue. Fang Xin had little choice but to claw his way out of the slow hell his life had become.
