Nanyang city, Fujian province, southern China, the present day. Twenty-two-year-old Xia Zao’an (Chen Duling), a brilliant mathematics student at Nanyang University who has won a full scholarship from Princeton University in the US, is rushed to hospital early one morning after being found unconscious; luckily a compatible donor is found and an immediate heart transplant is performed. Some six months later she returns to university, where she’s publically welcomed back by fellow Princeton scholarship awardee Qin Yifan , head of the elite students’ Reborn Society. To the annoyance of his girlfriend, Liang Xinyao , Qin Yifan invites Xia Zao'an to the society’s dance, even though she isn’t a member. Xia Zao’an, whose mother died of heart disease before the age of 30, has deliberately cultivated few friendships as she fears she too won’t last beyond 30. Among her small circle are fellow students Mi Kaka, who runs the almost member-less Inference Club, and tubby Bai Xuejiao , plus Zhou Weichuan , a former Princeton scholar and mathematics professor who’s now retired to run the university library and to whom Xia Zao’an attributes much of her success. The arrogant Qin Yifan spreads the idea that he and Xia Zao’an are a couple, as he sees her as his only intellectual equal, but she scorns the idea. One day a young man called Li Xiaochong (Lin Bohong) starts asking around about Xia Zao’an and finally tells her that her transplanted heart came from his best friend, Yi Tianjing, 19, who died earlier that night in an illegal motorbike race...
