Due to an unplanned pregnancy, Ha No Ra (Choi Ji Woo) married young and dropped out of school. But after two decades as a housewife, she finally gets the chance to experience college, alongside her 20-year-old son Kim Min Soo (Kim Min Jae) and his girlfriend Oh Hye Mi (Son Na Eun).

This witty and poignant story, starring the Oscar-winning Judi Dench, follows the small absurdities and major tragedies in the lives of the people of Cranford, as they are besieged by forces that they can't withstand.
Certain of her talents as a matchmaker, Emma Woodhouse persuades her new friend, the young, pretty and socially inferior Harriet, to reject a marriage proposal to a local farmer in favor of the dashing Mr. Elton. So begins a story which challenges Emma's naivety and her social preconceptions.
En route to becoming the new mayor of Goose Town, Bangde Ma (You Ge) has a dangerous run-in with Zhang (Wen Jiang), a notorious bandit looking for a quick buck — but unbeknownst to Zhang, Bangde is actually an imposter himself. Convinced Bange is a mere town counselor, Zhang hatches a crack plan to snatch the mayoral seat, which leads to a hilarious power struggle among crooks when they discover Goose Town is already under the thumb of the corrupt businessman Wang (Chow Yun-Fat).
Due to his daughter's kidnapping 20-years-ago, Kan Siu Nam (Adam Cheng) divorced his wife Angela (Rebecca Chan) and singularly focused on his acting career.

In the greatest role of his life, Siu Nam breaks through the fourth wall and follows an unnerving crime trail that leads back home.
