The failure of a bid has left the young designer Lin Zhenyi of the China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation(CRRC) feeling more frustrated than ever.
Her position as project team leader is replaced by Tan Jingzhou, an elite returnee from abroad.
Having witnessed Tan's style of working with his assistant Jian Ai, Lin understands the reasons for her failure, which leads her to a clean break in the subsequent Shenzhen bid.
On the emotional front, Lin Zhenyi and her new neighbor, test pilot Li Yanfeng, become "love-hate" friends, while her partner Tan Jingzhou also confesses his love for her, leaving her in a dilemma.
The locomotive project has many challenges to overcome. Technical innovations and huge competition in the industry, make it difficult for the CRRC to sell overseas.
In the end, with the help of Li Yanfeng and Tan Jingzhou, Lin Zhenyi is able to lead her team to beat international competitors and successfully make "Made in China" on five continents.
She and Li Yanfeng also gain their love.
