In 2005, two women are approaching 30 years old. Christy Lam (starring Chrissie Chau) is fearful of the future as she struggles with the stress at work, her ageing but annoying parents, and her seemingly stable yet stagnant relationship. On the other hand, Wong Tin-Lok (starring Joyce Cheng) has never been in love, and her job is taking her nowhere. However, she is optimistic towards life, and makes a bold decision to just pick up her bags and fulfil her childhood dream.
Christy makes a temporary move into Wong’s apartment. Through Wong’s diary, Christy discovers that they share the same birthday, and learns about her life. As their virtual bond grows, Wong’s alternate approach to life becomes an integral part of Christy’s own. Who has entered whose world?
