Synopsis and Plot Summary

It revolves around an ill-fated romance and messy entanglements that befalls two sisters in Shanghai during the 1920s and 1930s.

After the Gu Family falls to ruins, Gu Man Zheng (Jiang Xin) finds work at a factory as a clerical assistant and starts a relationship with her colleague Shen Shi Jun (Joe Cheng). In order to earn money, her older sister Gu Man Lu (Carina Lau) becomes a hostess and eventually marries the cunning Zhu Hong Cai (Guo Xiaodong). Shen Shi Jun's family wishes for him to marry Shi Cui Zhi (Dong Yue) who is the daughter of the Shi Family. Yet Cui Zhi falls in love with Shi Jun's good friend Xu Shu Hui (Zou Tingwei).

After getting married, Gu Man Lu feels reassured at leaving her old lifestyle behind to start anew as a proper housewife, but she realizes that she is unable to bear children.
