Lin Jia Le (Jesseca Liu), Lin Jia Qi (Rui En), Wang Zhi Wei (Tay Ping Hui) and Jiang Cheng Feng (Shaun Chen) are 4 young engineers from different arena but with the same dream of making the world a better place for mankind. In the pursuit of their dreams, their path crosses.

Jia Le always feels that she is cursed and misfortune will befall any man she falls in love with. She finally relented when Zhi Wei proves her wrong with his actions and sincerity. An accident changes Jia Le's mind and she escapes by joining a humanitarian mission, with Zhi Wei hot on her heels.

Jia Qi and Cheng Feng also fall in love, but the latter's ex-fiancee Shan Shan (Eelyn Kok) re-appears and wants to reconcile. Jia Qi is one who cannot tolerate any blemishes in a relationship and decides to step out of the competition and leaves the country, finding new love. But she returns to find a depressed Cheng Feng after Shan Shan's evil ploys are exposed and the sudden death of his father.

Due to the trouble and hardships between Cheng Feng and Jia Qi, Jia Qi finds comfort in her suitor, Sato (Elvin Ng). Sato proves to be a devoted lover to her and Jia Qi gradually falls in love with him while Cheng Feng is dragged down by Shan Shan.

In between everything, Xiaowei (Paige Chua) who has been friends with Zhi Wei ever since they were young, starts to fall in love with him, making things even more complicated for them.
