Tong Tong (Kate Tsui) lost part of her hearing in an explosion at a young age while trying to save her foster father and siblings. Since then, she uses a hearing aid to assist her. She is well liked by others and has an extremely positive attitude towards life despite her minor disability. With the support of her mentor Ko Ming (Yu Yang), Tong becomes a voice over talent by utilizing her lip reading ability.
At the production studio, she meets another voice talent Leung Kai-Yin (Kenneth Ma) who also has keen interest in the industry. Tong soon falls for Leung but is too shy to confess her love to him. Meanwhile, a colleague Yuen Siu Na (Claire Yiu) falls for Yin as well. Yin however is more fond of Tong and they fall in love soon after and began a relationship.
Unfortunately on one occasion, Tong's sister Chai Ka-Yee (Elaine Yiu) had everyone believe she was about to commit suicide after failing in a relationship. While trying to console her, Tong falls and hits her head causing her to lose her hearing completely. After the trauma, Tong lost all her confidence and shunned everyone else including Yin. Yin tries his best to encourage Tong to gain back her confidence and happiness in her life.
