Mainland youngster TANG WAI CHEUNG (KWOK CHUN ON) looks for his future father-in-law LING SING PO (CHUN WONG) with an old Hong Kong address passed on by his late mother. Unfortunately, PO moved a long time ago. With nowhere else to stay, CHEUNG lives with his young uncle TANG KING CHAN (MA KWOK MING). CHAN bluffs to his relatives about his wealth, but in fact, he is seriously in debt. In order to pay off CHAN’s debt, CHEUNG takes any jobs that he can find, and experiences the real world.
CHEUNG and his flatmate CHENG PIK WAN (WU, MYOLIE) encourage each other to work hard and slowly fall in love. Meanwhile, a rich man’s daughter LING FUNG (KONG CHERIE, CHERRY) dislikes the arranged marriage her parents set up for her and runs away from home. She somehow ends up settling down in the flat where CHEUNG and CHAN live. FUNG complains about everything in the flat. CHEUNG cannot stand her and fights with her all the time. On the other hand, CHAN is attracted by FUNG’s beauty. When he finds out that her father is the rich businessman PO, and CHEUNG’s future father-in-law, he pretends to be CHEUNG in order to marry FUNG.
CHAN’s plan falls apart. CHEUNG and CHAN turn their backs to each other. The four youngsters play the circle game in the maze of love. Meanwhile, CHEUNG keeps working his way up in this scavengers’ paradise – Hong Kong.
