娛樂圈名利背後﹐美麗神話真實謊言

"Behind the fame of stars, there's a beautiful myth of true lies."

Setting out on their quest for fame and fortune, three female TV stars of different backgrounds are resolved to achieve their dreams at any price. But after so many ups and downs in their acting careers, they finally come to discover the secret of true beauty.

Driven by sheer vanity, Ko Ching-man (Kate Tsui) takes part in a beauty pageant despite the strong opposition of her mother, a long-retired actress named Cheung Lai-hung (Kingdom Yuen), and leaps to stardom soon after winning the championship. Rising actress Cally Tong (Sharon Chan) feels threatened by Man and decides to join another TV station to look for a breakthrough, which is not supported by her production assistant friend Deacon Chong (Chris Lai). Leading actress Keung Chin-fung (Christine Ng) used to be a bitter rival of Hung. Realizing that Man's acting career is taking off at top speed, Fung means to approach her as a mentor, through which she hopes to drag the girl into her moral downfall bit by bit. Desperate for everlasting beauty, Fung injects herself with illegal substances in an attempt to slow the aging process. But things do not really go as planned and her face starts to change in shape. Her advertising deal with a cosmetics company is subsequently canceled and Man has soon replaced her as the new product endorser. Even the Award of Best Actress, which she has won for years, is slipping out of her hands. To vent her anger, Fung seeks to extract revenge on Man, finally plunging her into a world of pain and trouble.

Updated with a synopsis on the first post! It seems to be a really dark drama... TVB's trying on a drug theme, which is pretty risky if you ask me. Although it's ironic, I can already foresee a bunch of complaints from the audience... O_O
