Many years ago, Yan Chixia aspired to become an excellent demon hunter, so he chose Black Hill as his place of training and fulfilling his dream. At that time, Yan was still young, and in the old Black Hill lived several demons and spirits who have existed even longer than the hill itself. Although these creatures lead a simple and primitive lifestyle, they are enshrouded in a strong aura of death and killing.
Yan Chixia participates in battle after battle against the demons and spirits. The villagers in the vicinity are fearful of entering Black HIll and a nearby Lanruo Temple. Yan's sword and skill become more powerful and he is confident that he can defeat everything, until that day, he meets her and a tragedy begins. Many years later, all the rivers around the hill are hit by a serious drought and the villagers are forced to find a new water source on the haunted hill. It is here where human civilization meets primeval demons and a romance starts between a young scholar and a female ghost.
