Misfortune strikes when the oldest brother (Jiang Wu) accidentally kills his neighbor with a fruit knife while fooling around. He has to pay for his actions and goes to jail. The second oldest brother (Zhang Jia Yi)’s dream is to have his own successful business.

But he doesn’t only show persistence towards his work, he’s also persistent in pursuing his love. The second youngest brother (Guo Jing Lin) throws himself into the stock market right after graduating from university. At the same time, he becomes entangled in a love triangle.
