Lung, a hardworking property agent, is facing a serious situation in life. His girlfriend won`t marry him unless he can buy her a 1000-sq ft apartment in one year`s time. Charlotte, a recent divorcee who just moved out from her ex-husband, is in need of a new place to live. She receives a sizable breakup fee of 4 million dollars. Delivery girl Hak, who is Lung`s step daughter and sees him as a father figure, owns a small flat given by her estranged mother. Mainland richling Very works as an intern in Lung`s property agency, claiming to experience an ordinary life in Hong Kong.
