Kong Fanhua ( by Shi Chunlin) is the leader of Guanzhuang Village. Though a woman, Kong Fanhua is just as capable as the next guy, if not much better. During her tenure, everything in the village has been taken care of meticulously. A general election is just upon the heel. Hoping to get re-elected, Kong Fanhua passionately devote herself to “the battle”, even strategizing with her husband Zhang Dianjun ( by Ning Li ) who is working elsewhere to provide for the family.
A villager’s unexpected pregnancy messes up Kong Fanhua’s plan, the villager’s disappearance setup an even big obstacle in the way of her “political ascension”. After a series of nearly farce-level ridiculous detours, people’s focus moves away from Kong Fanhua’s competitor, Meng Qinshu ( by Zhang Gang ). Meanwhile, much to Kong Fanhua’s surprise, the Secretary of Youth League Committee, Meng Xiaohong ( by Miu Tingru ), long thought to be an ally, turns out to be a major rival.
