Synopsis and Plot Summary

A career woman over the age of 30 stands up against unfair practices at the workplace. She is caught between two men - her trusted assistant and her boss who is an eligible bachelor. Always one to choose reason over emotion, will Shen Ruoxin who is considered a 'leftover woman' be brave enough to pursue a romance with a younger man or will she marry the man that society dictates?

As a woman in a large male-dominated firm, Shen Ruoxin (Qin Lan) has been having trouble securing a promotion. She has been vying for the position of director of the legal department for a year to no avail due to the company's vice president making things difficult for her. After being assigned a case, Shen Ruoxin works with her young assistant Qi Xiao (Dylan Wang) and finds evidence that Jin Yuanhao who's been mooching off his lover has cheated on her too. Just as Shen Ruoxin has persuaded Jin Yuanhao to sign a settlement peacefully, someone had taken photos of them together and uploaded it to the internet.

As it turns out, Shen Ruoxin's boyfriend is the mastermind behind the ordeal because he wants Shen Ruoxin to lose her job and marry him. Shen Ruoxin refuses her boyfriend's wedding proposal and resolutely breaks up with him. However, the photo incident has already affected her career and she is transferred to the administration department. Qi Xiao who is sensitive and loyal to Shen Ruoxin follows her despite the demotion.

Meanwhile, Xu Mingjie (Li Zonghan) who suddenly became the company VP starts to pursue Shen Ruoxin. Qi Xiao gets mad over the fact that Xu Minjie's ex has been purposely provoking Shen Ruoxin. When it comes to money, family and career, Shen Ruoxin whose heart has opened up to Qi Xiao finally realizes that love is never going to be an equivalent exchange because it's simply about two people with a mutual attraction and understanding.
