Jiang Tian leaves home to work as an interior designer in Beijing, trying hard to save money to buy a house and manage her relationship.
As everything is going in the desired direction, Jiang Tian is transferred to a branch office in her hometown after offending the head of the company, forcing her to be separated from her boyfriend Fang Yuanqing.
The workplace environment in the branch office is far from Jiang Tian's imagination and she unexpectedly becomes a colleague with the 60-year-old Wu Jing Fang.
Jiang Tian's plans to return to Beijing are interrupted when she breaks up with her boyfriend and loses her job as a result.
Unemployed and heartbroken, Jiang Tian has no choice but to stay in her hometown.
Wu Jingfang takes Jiang Tian step by step out of her declining days and becomes her assistant in order to learn design.
Under the influence of Wu Jingfang, Jiang Tian finds a way to develop personally and integrate into her hometown, while Wu Jingfang discovers a new value and possibility for herself with Jiang Tian's help, reintegrating into the competitive society.
They build a deep "comradeship" through one setback after another, helping others to build their ideal home while at the same time firmly establishing the path each will take in the future.
