Yang Da Qi is on a quest to find investors to realize his dream of having his own coffee maker business. He also has a live-stream about financial management. As a YouTuber, he puts forth a bright façade. Zhou Yong Qing works as a manager in the creditor’s rights branch at a bank. She is devoted to her work and often works overtime. She also has a side job as a food delivery worker on holidays. In order to buy a house for her mom, she devotes every moment to work, giving up any chance at leisure or relaxation.
Ah Liang is very kind-hearted. He struggled to make a living for years but finally started his own business, as well as got married and had children. It seems like his life is going smoothly, until he makes the sudden decision to end his own life, leaving his family and friends perplexed. Da Qi, Yong Qing, and Ah Liang were good friends in high school. They agreed to achieve their own goals once they grew up, but they never expected their next meeting to be at Ah Liang’s funeral.
Yong Qing and Da Qi become close after Ah Liang’s passing. While getting to know each other again, Yong Qing discovers the debt hiding under Da Qi’s carefree exterior. Yong Qing is also under huge pressure because of her goal of buying her mom a house, as well as having to clean up after her subordinate’s mistakes. This drama shines a light on this terrible predicament: In an era where every person is saddled by debt, in which even breathing requires payment, where does the courage to keep living come from?
