The old Hong Kong Airport area was where the star of our story Tong Yik Sum grew up and with the aeroplanes flying over his head every day made him fall in love with them. Later, due to a breakdown between his parent's personalities, his mother left him for a faraway place, leaving Sum with a wish to become a pilot to be able to bring back his mother and reunite his family. His family background caused the intelligent and sensible Sum to become even more responsible and from a young age, he is able to look after his father. Through this hard work, he gradually reaches his goal in becoming an airline pilot.
As a senior first officer, Sum's wish all along is to become the first Chinese captain and thus is very strict with his work, with very high expectations from himself and because of this, he is highly respected in his work. As far as Sum is concerned, when flying a plane, to follow every process and procedure is not a difficult thing and with experience it has become second nature to him; conversely, on his communication skills with other people, he finds it hard to grasp, especially when it comes to affairs of the heart, proving the separation of his parents had a deep and lasting effect.
Sum's childhood friend Ling Wan Chi became an aircraft enthusiast with him and then went on to become a pilot as well, but Chi has a different philosophy on love. Chi with Sum that they should seek out true love, but he will not take things a step at a time like Sum and lose out on some golden opportunities. He will take the driving action and even though others see him as the flirtatious pilot, he has his principle in that he is flirtatious but not rude, he takes this 'branding' in his stride. In the same airport, flight attendant Lok Yi Shan also has the dream of finding true love, but her fate is that she has not yet met with it. Until Shan meets obstacles with her work and decides to resign and ake a holiday, where she meets Sum and Chi under the arrangement of destiny and starts a journey where they all seek out their true love...
Rome, Italy. A lively and romantic city that seems to suggest that a hot romantic love affair is about to begin. Sum arrives in Rome through work and a Chinese person in a foreign place will have special memories of everything he meets. Sum and Shan meet by coincidence and the sentimental Shan sees this as the arrival of her destiny, with Sum also developing an unusual feeling for her. In the bustling romantic atmosphere of a foreign land, the two spark off a heated love affair and experience for the first time a taste of passion and a promise of love. However a great misunderstanding causes Sum and Shan to believe that they have been deeply misled and what started as a love sent from the heavens has become a great disappointment. Sum returns to Hong Kong with his colleagues deeply upset and hurt and the sensitive Shan is left alone in the foreign place, feeling very sorry for herself. At this point, she meets with Chi who has arrived later and under his enthusiastic pursuance, Shan overcomes her unhappiness. In the words of Chi, Shan's appearance is a blessing, a confirmation and he quickly chooses her as a target, selecting her to be his partner for life.
During the short time that Sum was in Rome, the most memorable thing for him, apart from Shan was a youth - Ying Fung. In an incident, Sum developed a very strong dislike towards Fung and felt that he was always lazing about and not serious at all. Altogether, this trip to Rome was a terrible experience for Sum and moreover, his bad times created a chance for his good friend Chi to meet and start a love affair with Shan. The reunification of his parents reveals to Sum that when his mother left all those years ago, she was carrying his younger brother Tong Yik Fung when she left and what is more surprising is that Yik Fung is the Ying Fung that he met a year ago in Rome.
When he hears that Shan is to transfer from the Australian base back to Hong Kong, Chi shares this with Sum and Shan meets him again as Chi's fiancée and the forgotten memories once again stimulate their hearts and feelings. Sum offers his sincere congratulations to Chi and Shan in order to allow Shan to relish in Chi's love. During this time, Fung starts to fall in love with So Yee who works in the aviation authorities, but during his chase, he finds that So Yee only has feelings for his big brother Sum, however he only sees her as a little sister and does not care for her love. As a result, Yee becomes another obstacle in the relationship between the two brothers.
Applying for the pilot's school with Fung and also full of confidence, externally bold but internally sensitive is Tung Hei Yan. Yan has little confidence in love and men and has a rather rebellious nature, wanting to do better than men in everything and causing some friction with Fung. With a simple and naive outlook on life and having been showered with love from his rich parents who are directors in a large enterprise, Man Ho Chung develops love at first sight with Yan and her rejections only spur his desires on even more, even making him apply to become a trainee pilot to be near her. After many examinations and as she is waiting for the results as to whether she will be selected for training in Australia, Yan finds some clues about her father's identity and heads to Japan to search for him. In order to prove his commitment to her, Chung and some friends go with her and as Fung is at a rough patch with his family, he decides to go along as well.
Originally thinking that he could put the Rome incident behind him after Chi and Shan's wedding, Sum finds that destiny is taunting him and the road towards a perfect wedding is a complicated triangular love affair. The misunderstanding between Sum and Shan is discovered by Fung and he finally decides to let them overcome their differences and let Shan make a fair choice between him and Sum. Shan's decision brings much relief to Chi, but the experience leaves a thorn in the relationships between the three waiting for the sensitive one to feel the pain and that person is Chi. After this incident, the relationships between the three become even more confusing as Shan and Chi bring together the love between Yee and Sum. With the addition of Yee, this four-person affair becomes an even more difficult situation.
During the training in Australia, Sum and Fung's brotherly relationship develops into a teacher-student situation. Sum returns to Hong Kong to continue his piloting work and the brothers have a chance to work together. As a group of young pilots take to the skies, Sum and Chi are also affected by their spirit and together they work towards their most important examination. At this vital point, Sum finds out that he has a condition that will affect his ability to continue flying and he is plunged into hesitation and despair as he worries about his career. Fung senses something is wrong and finds out about Sum's illness, he decides that this should not be allowed to continue and using the safety of the aircraft as a reason, he reports Sum to the authorities, saying he can no longer be a pilot. Just as everyone is celebrating Chi's success at becoming the first Chinese captain, the announcement is made that Sum is to be transferred into customer services. The ups and downs of flying are like those in life and to continue to pursue one's goals even at the bottom of a valley, there is a belief that there will be a day when you can fly high again.
Sum faces the challenges of his new work with optimism and positivity. At this time Yee's concern and support for him touches him deeply, consolidating his love for her. Originally their pairing was the wish of Chi and Shan, but when Shan sees Sum and Yee acting so lovingly together, she starts to feel jealous and this is discovered by the sensitive Chi. Finally, Chi makes a decision to return to his home in Australia in the hope that Shan can make her decision again. On the other hand: Fung, Yan and Chung's friendship is tested. Chung is still madly in love with Yan, but Yan's relationship with Fung has developed from antagonism to that of affection resulting in an awkward triangular affair. An incident occurs that shows Fung his care for Yan is nowhere near that of Chung and together with Chung's inadvertant pressure on him, this makes him decide to fade out and distance himself from the others.
At this time, Sum and Shan's path appears to be smooth and free from obstacles, however Shan finds out that the more she gives to Sum, the greater she feels the love that Chi gave to her and this is something that Sum can never offer her. Who is the one she loves the most, who is the one who loves her the most, will there be a fruitful result for the love between Shan and Sum? When Fung sees Yee sacrificing herself but pulling back from Sum, will there be more conflict between him and his brother? With Fung, Yan and Chung's love affairs and friendship in a stalemate position, will there be a new development?
