Sheng Xuanhuai, born in Changzhou, Jiangsu, was one of the three major businessmen in the late Qing Dynasty and one of the representatives of the Self-Strengthening Movement. He was not only an arduous entrepreneur, but also an entrepreneur who promoted the development of modern Chinese education. His industrial experience involved shipping, telegraphy, textiles and banking. And in the process of starting those businesses, he gained an advanced understanding of the establishment of industries. For example, in the period of railway construction, he asked the Qing government to establish China's own bank, and believed that the development of heavy industry and other industries must be cooperated with the development of the financial industry. Using various examples from the Self-Strengthening Movement, the docuseries once again brought this controversial man to the screen and exhibited the glorious years of this powerful and wealthy industrialist.
