On one of his business trips, he meets a flight attendant, You-you Shang, and they develop a romantic relationship.

Six months later, Cherie is also transferred to the company in Beijing. The two meet by chance but at this time, Cherie is also seeing a responsible and down-to-earth businessman, Sam. Jimmy and Cherie cheat behind Sam's and You-you's backs.
