Battle Through the Heavens (Chinese: 斗破苍穹; pinyin: Dòupò Cāngqióng; literally: "Fight Through the Sky") is a 2018 Chinese television series adapted from the eponymous novel Doupo Cangqiong (斗破苍穹) by Tiancan Tudou (天蚕土豆). It stars Leo Wu, Lin Yun, Baron Chen, Li Qin, Xin Zhilei and Liu Meitong. The series airs on Hunan TV on September 3, 2018.
Xiao Yan (Leo Wu) is the son of Xiao Zhan (Yu Rongguang) and Gu Wenxin (Carman Lee). When Xiao Yan was nine, his mother was killed by enemies and his father never talked about it. Until he was fifteen years old, his martial art has made no progress due to his mother's ring absorbing all his progress. One day, Xiao Yan encounters the old man Yao Chen (Baron Chen) after making contact with the ring. With the help of Yao Chen, Xiao Yan makes great advances in martial arts, and learns of the main instigator the death of his mother. Xiao Yan enrolls for the Jianan Academy (迦南学院) and makes friends there. Once he is framed and narrowly escaped, he finds that his family have been doomed. In order to revenge for the murder of his mother, but also for the justice of Jianghu, Xiao Yan resolutely chose a single person to challenge the forces of evil.
