  Successful debt collector Chiu takes pity on a group of wannabe pop starlets when he goes to collect from the agency they are signed with. Naively thinking that he can do a better job in launching their careers, Chiu takes over the company in lieu of the debt but starts to realize that he may have bitten off more than he can chew. Hoping that things might change with a more strategic approach, he hires experienced talent manager Suen but with money running low and the company on the brink of bankruptcy, a dejected Chiu is soon ready to admit that his Midas touch has run out until a Korean showbiz entity expresses interest in the girls. Now Chiu has to decide whether he is willing to say goodbye to his investment and, more importantly, to a dream he has come so close to achieving.

  One day, Ken, a hairstylist went to do the bridal’s hair. Much to his surprise, he bumped into his first lover, Bobo...

  It was the first day of summer vacation, the doctor diagnosed that Bobo’s mother should take a kidney transplant surgery immediately. Bobo was told that she could buy a kidney from the Mainland for about $60,000 - an enormous sum for a destitute family like Bobo’s. She was then referred by Wendy, her previous neighbour to work as a high-class prostitute to earn quick money. Unable to offer a better option for Bobo, Ken could only support her decision.

  After escorting Bobo to “work” for a week, Ken finally burst and snapped at her in discontent and jealousy. Bobo then decided to go to work alone. Meanwhile, Ken also decided to go camping with his friends. When he got home, he was told by his mother that Bobo’s mother had passed away unexpectedly. Bobo and her younger sister were taken away by her relative.

  Bobo’s sudden disappearance ten years ago still lingered Ken’s heart. Their reunion forced them to walk through the time tunnel which stirred up every bit and piece of their past memories. Life is like a roller coaster with ups and downs and is ever-changing. What exactly have Ken and Bobo missed? Would they eventually have a happy ending?
