    • Opening theme song: Don't Say That I Didn't Indulge You (咪話唔就你) by Ron Ng and Myolie Wu


    Chor Chi (Ron Ng) and his father, Chor Fan (Sunny Chan), depend on each other for a living. After graduating from university, Chi becomes a public relations officer at a tobacco company. He completes his tasks well and gets promoted rapidly, becoming part of the young professionals group. Chi depends on the tobacco to get fame and wealth, but Fan feels that his son is promoting smoking, similar to 'helping a villain to do evil.' Chi moves out from the house so that he will not have any more conflicts with his elderly father.

    Fan later contracts the Alzheimer's disease, causing Chi to move back home to take care of him. However, Fan's old style of doing things is both annoying and laughable to Chi. Chi meets a wealthy elderly businessman Cheng Kwan-min (Lo Chun Shun) from the city who tried to poach him over using a high pay and post, but unexpectedly, a freak accident happens along the way, causing Chi to travel back in time to the 1960's era.

    When Chi first steps into this old era, he is accidentally hurt by the younger Fan. Fan takes him home, but he comes into clashes with the landlady's daughter, Ching Lan-fun (Shirley Yeung). Seeing that he is unable to return to 2008, Chi finds a job to support himself. However, in this place, connections are needed everywhere, and Chi's education qualifications become useless. Fortunately, with Fan's help, he becomes a sales clerk at the Dor Dor department store. Chi finds out that Cheng Kwan-min is actually the manager of this departmental store, and clings onto him.

    Fan accidentally discovers that Chi came from the future, and he's his son, thus he allowed his son to control his love life. Chi witnesses his father doing such a sacrifice for him, thus he decided to repent his ways and give up on relying the wealthy businessman. However, the wealthy businessman unexpectedly clinched the 2008's own historical writing award, and he devised an evil plan to buy over the landlady's building, chasing all the tenants out. He wanted to use it to develop his property kingdom. Chi is filled with regrets and decides to salvage the situation. However, he accidentally returns to 2008...
