Hong Kong movie star Lau Wai-chi (Andy Lau) misses out on the Hong Kong film awards again. Reflecting on his declining popularity, he starts creating tribute videos, but it feels like a desperate attempt to regain his stardom. He decides he needs to make a comeback through a new film. He contacts Chinese director Lin Hao (Ning Hao), known for his authentic and gritty filmmaking, to star in a film set in the countryside. Believing that this will be the key to restoring his career to its former glory. Lau Wai-chi is determined to challenge himself by portraying an ordinary farmer. A role far removed from his usual glamorous characters. But used to a life of luxury and privilege, he finds it challenging to connect with the common people and villagers, who have a lower social status. He also struggles to bridge the gap with women in the village. To succeed in his new role, he immerses himself in the lives of the villagers, learning how they live and speak. However, his arrogance and vanity are immediately evident to the locals, and they don't take kindly to his presence. If he manages to genuinely put aside his vanity and prejudice, will he be given another chance? 聪颖40年的大明星又一次与金像奖失之交臂。而此刻他却在办公室里拍摄起自己经典形象的怀旧短视频。面对镜头,说着老铁666,他觉得太 low 了。他觉得不应该哗众取宠,消费自己,应该去拍一部电影。于是他找到自己曾经扶持过的内地导演,要主演一部农村题材的电影,赢回失去的奖杯。然而,他习惯于当个电影明星,在日常生活里被特殊以待。以至于他很难去把自己和那些社会地位低于他的路人甚至农民联系起来。而他与女性之间,也存在着无法逾越的鸿沟。为了新角色的成功,他需要去向村民们学习他们真实的生活和说话方式。但村民们最终还是看穿了他以及他所属阶层的傲慢以及虚荣心。可如果一个大明星都学不会沟通,那他也只是一个无名小卒罢了。但假设他不能抛弃虚荣心和偏见,他就无法沟通。而如果他做到了,他们,会再给他一次机会吗?
