. . . Limelight Years . . .

After recovering from a long term illness, semi-retired popular singer Wah Fong Ying (Liza Wang) realizes that she has lived an unfulfilled life. With two failed marriages and estranged relationships with all of her children, she lives a lonely life. Wanting to mend her relationship with her oldest daughter, Lancy who resides in Taiwan, she travels there and meets Hong Kong photographer Ben Law (Damian Lau), whose wife was a fan of hers. Ben is in Taiwan to fulfill his late wife’s wish (Michelle Yim) to have her remains returned to her ancestral home. Romance sparks between the two and soon each becomes the other’s strength and support. Realizing that throughout her career she has never sung for her loved ones, Fong Ying decides to hold a last concert for her friends and family with Ben’s encouragement, but her daughter Tong Yan (Eliza Sam) rejects her invitation to attend. Fong Ying proceeds to work on her concert and hires personal assistant Jinny Szeto (Linda Chung) and creative director Sean Song (Alex Fong) to help her produce the concert. Just as light seems to shine on Fong Ying again, darkness comes back into her life when Jinny finds out that Fong Ying was involved in an affair with her uncle in the past and Ben starts to suffer from hallucinations due to a brain tumor.[5][6]
