Li Jianjian (Tan Songyun), Ling Xiao (Song Weilong), and He Ziqiu (Zhang Xincheng) are three individuals unrelated by blood but become each other's family. They bond over their shared family troubles and support each other through the ups and downs of life. The story follows them through childhood, high school, college, and eventually adulthood. As they grow up, re-kindle relationships with their biological family, and experience hardships in life, the bond between the three becomes strained. But somehow, they always find their way back to each other.[3]

The drama received mixed to positive reviews. In China, ratings started out very strong but dropped significantly as the series went on. Many viewers did not enjoy the storyline of two so-called adoptive brothers suddenly falling in love with their biologically unrelated sister who they grew up with referring to it as a dog-blood (cheesy) drama with too many stereotypical tropes and were disappointed by the slow plot in the latter half of the series.[5] It ended with a rating of 6.9 on Douban.[3] Among international viewers particularly in Asia, the drama was a big hit and received generally positive reviews.
