He offers to divorce her so that she can find another husband to help her. The wilful Tuya initially refuses, but gradually accepts she has to find a new man, only to find that no suitor will take on such a determined and demanding woman. When the wealthy Baolier finally steps forward as bridegroom and promptly sends Bater to a nursing home, Tuya makes a radical decision.
