Tung Hoi Yiu, Chloe (Charmaine Sheh), is an international superstar, as a publicity stunt she visits long time fan Yu Chun Tung, Andy (Moses Chan), in hospital and their lives become entangled. The tabloid press and blogosphere feed on each other to create the impression that the two are in fact dating. In order to control the news coverage, Chloe's management company creates the illusion of a lightening romance and an equally quick break up between Chloe and Andy, with Chloe being portrayed as the wronged party. Since she was 16 and discovered by a talent spotter Chloe's life and career has been under the control of her cousin Tung Mei Mei, Tina (Florence Kwok), to escape the manipulations of her cousin Chloe announces her retirement from the entertainment industry. However in the short period of their supposed romance Chloe has come to care for Andy, and Tina uses this to force Chloe to return to the entertainment industry.
Whilst abroad Chloe discovers the extent of Tina's manipulations, that Tina has been feigning terminal cancer and that her previous boyfriend broke up with her because Tina used her phone to send a Dear John message. In a fit of pique and to the surprise of everyone, including Andy, Chloe holds a spot news conference in which she announces her imminent marriage to Andy. Despite only superficially knowing Chloe, Andy can't believe his luck and agrees to the marriage proposal. Tina and her coterie of followers are forced to play along with Chloe, but work to drive the couple apart. Despite finding some happiness together Andy and Chloe have little in the way of understanding and trust between each other and, with only minimal help from Tina, the couple part.
However Tina realises that Chloe has truly fallen in love with Andy. Tina seeing in Chloe's latest film performance a rejection of things that Chloe had previously held dear and that the only reason for this is that her breaking with Andy has broken her spirit. Filled with guilt Tina attempts to help Andy understand Chloe in the hope that in doing so that he can come to love the real Chloe and not the illusion presented to the world.
As they negotiate the travails of life and love, Chloe and Andy's lives cross and touch with other couples making their own choices. Chung Ping Leung (Wai Ka Hung) and Elsa (Tracy Ip) are kindred souls, well matched by personality but not by physique. Nick (King Kong) and Hayley (Rachel Kan) have both been scarred by bad relationships and are unable to form meaningful bonds with the opposite sex, however when Nick becomes impotent they find that they have more in common than a long history of one night stands. Poon Chun Him's (Kenny Wong) relationships are perpetually out of synch, whenever he is ready for marriage his girlfriends are not and vice versa. When his friends Yeung Chi Wah (Patrick Dunn) and Fung Yiu Dan, Kelly (Elvina Kong) divorce after it is discovered that Yeung has been harbouring a secret homosexual infatuation for him, Poon and Kelly find themselves being drawn to each other, but this time will their timing be in synch.
