The Dragon King of the Dong Tong Lake had a beautiful daughter whose husband and in-laws abused her terribly. One day, a young man came across her. Much moved by her story of betrayal, he carried a message for help to her father, The Green Dragon.

Overhearing the sad tale, her fearsome uncle, The Crimson Dragon, flew into a rage and broke the chains with which the Gods hoped to control him. He found and slew the abusive husband and his evil parents, rescued the beautiful maiden and restored her to her former glory. Later she married the handsome young man who delivered her message to her father.
