Dust and Dawn is set at the turbulent time of the late Yuan Dynasty when Zhu Yuanzhang rose to power. Lin Nanfeng wished to retreat from the turmoil of war, yet was delegated to be the leader of The White Lotus Society as his master Ma Yue’s successor.

Lin was not only embroiled in battles but also in love, as he found himself struggling to choose among three women: Shen Xin, Zhang Xiaoyue and Han Tong. Lin’s master, Ma, who decided to become a monk, still held deep affection for his old lover Bai Hezi. While all these relationships remained intertwined with unsolved matters, a killer from Fuso’s The Fire God Family was fast approaching, threatening everyone’s life...

In this chaos, can Lin find the middle path and lead a peaceful life?
