The drama is a comedic view of the high cost of living and struggles regular Hong Kong citizens go through in order to be able to own property in modern Hong Kong society [2]

Jack Lau Yiu-ming (Vincent Wong) and his girlfriend Annie (Toby Chan) diligently saves up enough to purchase a flat to plan their future together. In order to make their monthly mortgage payment the two live an extremely frugal lifestyle where they can't spend on extra luxuries. When Jack proposes to Annie she breaks up with him and confesses about her other fiancee who already owns a payed off flat. Jack's friend Au Mei-nam (C-Kwan), who owns a bar sets up singles night at his bar hoping Jack will get back into the dating. The only female that catches his attention is a lady who complains about how awful the food being served taste.

Jack, still devastated by his break up with Annie decides to splurge on his hobby. On the day he is to pay and pick up his splurge, bad luck after bad luck happens. First he and a work associate gets robbed at a parking lot. While chasing the robber he damages House Lo Bit-tat (Evergreen Mak) car. Later Jack finds out the company he works for deals in illegal activities and all upper management has been arrested by the police. With the company he works for out of business he starts his search for a new job with no luck. Jack applies to All In One Property Management, a company that manages and rents property, as an Supervisor in desperation to find a job even though he has no prior property management experience, but he messes up even before his interview starts when he barges into CEO Joyce Lei Oi-wah's (Kiki Sheung), private elevator. Joyce demands Jack to be fired even if he is not an employee with the company. House, who is upper management at All In One Property Management, recognizes Jack and further embarrasses him in front of others during the interview process. While sulking at another unsuccessful job interview Jack sees a girl fall into the bay. He saves her and lectures her about the importance of life, as the two part they accidentally switch cellphones by mistake.

When Jack returns home that day he finds a new occupant in his home. It seems his ex-girlfriend Annie rented her half of his home to her friend Cecilia Choi Kin-ching (Selena Li), in order to help Jack with the mortgage and hopefully get her share of the flat payback to her sooner. Cecilia was forced out of her family home when her younger brother got married. Before renting half of Jack's flat she was living out of an storage locker. The two get off on the wrong foot and soon Cecilia makes Jack's life miserable by setting up boundaries and strict rules at his home. Later Jack finds out Cecilia was also the lady complaining of the awful food at Mei-nam's bar.

Jack's luck takes an turn when he is called back to All In One Property Management and offered the position of General Manager, he becomes House's new boss. To his surprise, Jack can't figure out how he got hired as the General Manager since his interview was an failure and he has no prior property management experience. To House's disappointment, he was deemed to become the new General Manager and had told his family and co-workers about it. House's continue to lie to his family with only his wife knowing he didn't get promoted. House tries to mend his and Jack's work relationship but Jack sees through House's act and warns him about his approach.

As it turns out Jack was hired because the girl he saved Peggy Suk Bik-gei (Eliza Sam) is Joyce's niece who just returned to Hong Kong from Canada. Joyce had someone tailed Peggy and saw Jack's act of kindness when he saved Peggy's life. Peggy returned to Hong Kong to fulfill her late mother's wish, to have her ashes spread in the Hong Kong Bay and study Chinese history at an University. To fulfill a University requirement she also works as a Intern at All In One under Jack's department.
