, also filled with the dynamics of young people in Hong Kong. As investor, producer, director, and screenplay writer, he pools together rising young singers in Hong Kong to unfold a story about music, youth, and love.

In the course of pursuing their music dreams, the three aspiring youngsters learn more about themselves, about each other, and about love.
Music is the only comfort to Tony (Alex Fong), a rich man's son. He visits a second-hand vinyl record shop and befriends storekeeper Kristy (Kary Ng). Kristy has a crush on him, and everything just seems too perfect when Tony starts to date her! Disaster comes when she learns that his real purpose for going out with her is to join a famous rock band! Her long-time friend and admirer Ki (Justin Lo) accompanies her through all her low points, and even helps her to reconcile with Tony who later regrets betraying her.
