Synopsis and Plot Summary

A seventy-year-old grandma miraculously finds herself becoming 20 once again and relives her life with her new identity.

Shen Meng Jun (Grace Gua) is a cranky old granny with a terrible temper. Aside from the housekeeper (Wang De Shun), nobody likes her at all and her daughter-in-law (Li Yi Juan) even gets hospitalized after falling sick from living under the same roof with her. Her family unanimously decides to send her to the home for the aged. On the way, she passes by a photography studio hoping to take one last picture.

Unexpectedly, the picture transforms her into her younger self when she was only 20 years old (Yang Zi Shan). The magical turn of events inspires her to join a musical troupe as the lead singer and she catches the attention of Director Tan Zi Ming (Chen Bolin) and guitarist Xiang Qian Jin (Luhan) who begin competing for her affections. As the new Meng Li Jun, she is delighted to experience how it feels to be in love again, but an accident will lead her to make a huge and irreversible decision - should she stay as a miss or go back to life as a granny.
