The movie starts with a middle-aged Confucius, when he serves in the Kingdom of Lu's government, advocating his political idea that a nation should be ruled with courtesy and morality.
However, his political ambitions are plagued by an opposing clan, and so at the age of 55, the frustrated Confucius leaves the kingdom of Lu and travels through different states for 14 years, followed, fortunately, by dozens of his loyal disciples.
The movie's director, Hu Mei, is distinguished for her historical TV dramas; but nevertheless, she took a muddy and risky path when she decided to tell the story of Confucius in a biographical fashion. In the first place, historical records and documents about Confucius don't offer enough dramatic elements to help compose a good plot. More importantly, the greatness of the ancient sage is mostly evidenced by his thoughts rather than his life events; therefore, the movie was born with a drama-deficiency.
