Program Abstract: It is policeman Ma Tianmin’s day off, and his chief’s wife has fixed him up with Liu Ping, a young woman she knows. On his way to keep the date, Ma helps an old farmer rescue a pig that has fallen into a stream, helps a man get his sick children to a hospital emergency ward, and returns a wallet and train ticket to the person who lost them. As a result, he is very late for the date, and a miffed Liu treats him coldly. But it turns out that the farmer he had stopped to help was Liu’s father, who praises the young man very highly, and when Liu learns that Ma was late only because of his kindness and consideration, her opinion of him greatly improves.
