Xiao Yu (played by Qi Xi), who freshly graduated from her master programme, and Xia Mi (played by Guo Jingfei), who just returned from a design school in France, are hired by a fashion company. Although their posts are accidentally swapped, they decide to leave the mistake uncorrected and make the best of it. In order to get the credit, Xiao Yu usurps Xia Mi’s brainchild and pretends it is her design. However, Xiao Yu then falls prey to the office politics of her boss, Miss Sha (played by Kong Wei). Xiao Yu and Xia Mi resolutely join hands to fight back, forcing the female fiend to take the last dangerous step which changes the whole game.
