In a café, the two catch up and look back on their youth in their provincial hometown. Back then, Wei Jing and Jia Lei’s brother Jia Sen were lovers, but they were forced to break up because of the disapproval of Jia Lei’s father. Losing faith in love, Wei Jing ended up going overseas to study and became a renowned musician, but the emptiness in her heart remains. Meanwhile, Jia Lei pushes back against her father’s arranged marriage after witnessing her brother’s unhappiness. She runs away from home, marries her college sweetheart and creates a family in Taipei. However, things begin to change after her husband’s career takes off.
