The girls quickly bonded over a shared love for aerobic dance. Together, they organized dance group M Club and Siu Si became their team captain. Although they vowed eternal friendship, life sent them in different directions after graduation and the six eventually lost contact with each other.
In the present day, Siu Si stumbles upon a sign advertising for Fung Sin Dance Studio, which triggers her memories of her friends and M Club. She learns that Fung Sin has continued to pursue her passion and has become a dance instructor. Later, when Fung Sin becomes hospitalized, she asks Siu Si and the rest of M Club to help run her studio and to protect her dancing dreams.
Although Fung Sin’s studio is saved for now, the group discovers that their former nemesis Yung Daan Daan (Flora Chan 陳慧珊) has also established a dance studio, threatening their business. Things become even messier when Siu Si runs into her first love Yiu Ji Lun (Lawrence Ng 吳啟華), who is now Daan Daan’s boyfriend.
