Synopsis

Gu Jie, a graduate from a renowned university, who wants to be an excellent chef like his father, is determined to be an apprentice at a Western restaurant. To his surprise, the owner commits a bankruptcy fraud. After the restaurant closes, he cannot find a job in Shanghai. During this time, his old college mate, Lin Feng, sees an "uxorilocal marriage wanted" ad by the Tianmenqing Restaurant Group. Feng is bent on marrying a rich woman, so he goes to Chongqing to take on the challenge. Jie, being unemployed, follows him to Chongqing in hope to find a job. Unexpectedly, Zhou Weiwei, the daughter of the Tianmenqing president falls for Jie. Absurd efforts of persuasion hence begin. Everyone feels that Jie is lucky to be chosen by Weiwei and wants him to marry her. Jie, who cannot let go of the patriarchal ideology, does not wish his family to be without offspring and will not give up his dream to pursue higher education in France. However, Weiwei's love for him is so genuine. Struggled in between his dignity, his ideal, the mainstream values, and the love of Weiwei, will Gu Jie be able to see his true desire deep inside?

著名大學畢業的顧杰執意在西餐廳當學徒,想和過世的父親一樣成為優秀主廚。不料餐廳惡性倒閉,他在上海求職無門。此時,他的同窗林風在報上看見「天門慶餐飲集團」的「招贅啟事」。林風一心想「嫁」入豪門,省得人生奮鬥,決定到重慶接受挑戰。失業的顧杰也隨林風來到重慶,只為求得一職。不料「天門慶」的千金周薇薇卻愛上陪同面試的顧杰,大家都覺得被千金看上是顧杰的福氣,一場荒謬的勸「嫁」行動劇正式上演!

然而,顧杰無法放下「男尊女卑」的傳統觀念,也不願讓單傳的顧家絕後,更不願放棄去法國深造的夢想;再者,薇薇的情感又如此真切。徘迴在自尊、家族使命、理想、主流價值與薇薇的深情中,顧杰能否看見自己的真實渴望。
