Always one to choose reason over emotion, will Shen Ruo Xin who is considered a 'leftover woman' be brave enough to pursue a romance with a younger man or will she marry the man that society dictates?

As a woman in a large male-dominated firm, Shen Ruo Xin has been having trouble securing a promotion. She has been vying for the position of director of the legal department for a year to no avail due to the company's vice president making things difficult for her. After being assigned a case, Shen Ruo Xin works with her young assistant Qi Xiao and finds evidence that Jin Yuan Hao who's been mooching off his lover has cheated on her too. Just as Shen Ruo Xin has persuaded Jin Yuan Hao to sign a settlement peacefully, someone had taken photos of them together and uploaded it to the internet.
