Synopsis and Plot Summary

As a female architect of the new era, Su Xiao has always upheld professional values but she is fired from her job and loses her license due to an incident. The story follows the journey of cost engineer Su Xiao as she reflects on the present situation of China's construction industry.

With Su Xiao (Sun Li) due for a promotion and her love life going well, she never expected to suffer from successive blows when she is betrayed by the man she loves and also loses her job. Tough as nails, she is determined to stay in the city even if she must start over from the bottom but the cold, harsh reality hits her like a ton of bricks. Given that she was fired from her old job, Su Xiao's countless job applications are repeatedly rejected.

Guilty over what happened, her ex-boyfriend secretly uses his connections to land her a job as a cost supervisor at Tiancheng Construction. Meanwhile, Su Xiao is simply happy to find employment and pours her blood, sweat and tears into her work. Su Xiao catches the attention and admiration of chief economist Xia Ming (Mark Chao) when she wins a high-profile bid within the company while other competitors start to work against her. Amidst multiple setbacks, Su Xiao continues to grow and evolve as she becomes an outstanding corporate executive.
