Synopsis

A shining star in the court of volleyball, Cai Yanfang (Jesseca Liu) is unfortunately self-centred and critical. She falls out with her teammates and dragged her best friend Rainie (Joanne Peh) along to switch to beach volleyball.

All is not smooth-sailing as Rainie is immensely jealous of Yanfang's talent, and they eventually break up over Ma Tianwu (Christopher Lee), a beach bar owner. Rainie forms a new team to compete, while Yanfang discovers a hidden talent in Sixing (Dawn Yeoh), a nerdy Maths student.

But Yanfang's selfishness and critical nature surface and it threatens to break the partnership. Sixing also gets distracted with the good-looking Tianwu. On the eve of a major competition, a madly jealous Rainie sends thugs to beat Sixing up, but Yanfang gets injured while trying to save the latter. An injured Yanfang is determined to compete, but her injury worsens at the crucial moment, will this be the end of her championship dreams?
