This is a story in 2005. Christy Lam is a typical city girl born and raised in Hong Kong. She is a month from turning 30, and has just begun to cope with the same struggles shared by most girls of the same age: the almost unbearable stress at work, her aging but annoying parents, and her seemingly stable yet stagnant relationship. All of these only add to her fear for this next chapter of her life. Wong Tin-Lok, on the other hand, is also turning 30 soon, but leads a vastly different life. She has never been in love, and her job is taking her nowhere. And yet, she has always kept an optimistic attitude towards life.

But as fate would have it, Christy makes a temporary move into Wong's apartment. Through exploring Wong's diary, Christy not only discovers that they share the same birthday, but ...
This is a movie that every girl should watch before they turn to the woman stage. you won't be disappointed if you have experienced any anxiety and failure in your late 20s.This film was adapted from the director's own solo play, which was a great success in Hong Kong. The film is even better than the play in my opinion because the director gives more dimensions to the two main female lead and the movie setting is much more mature after the eighth re-run of the solo play.
