It is the summer of 1997. 27-year-old Miu starts working as a fishmonger at Prosperity Market to pay the heavy debts of her philandering father. She sets a 3-year plan for herself: before she turns 30, she shall clean her father's debts, leave the wet market, find a man worthy of her, and break the spell of her bad karma.
No sooner has she set foot on the market than she finds herself at loggerheads with Mr Fish in the neighboring stall. A fierce battle of survival is unleashed, only to turn into a mutual entente when the existence of Prosperity Market is jeopardized by the aggressive emergence of supermarket megastores. In the end, they fail to save the market. But their camaraderie has blossomed into a deeper feeling for each other, an unanticipated development Miu is not ready to embrace.
When her father suddenly dies of a heart attack and the government plans to demolish Prosperity Market, Miu decides to leave the market for good. Convinced that a new face will set her free from her smelly past, she enrolls in a makeup course funded by the government. As she embarks on her new life as a makeup artist, the world indeed becomes bigger, brighter, cleaner. However, she misses an important turn on the path of her life.
