This is a story about three dancers who are in a love triangle. Innocent girl Sabrina has danced since she was young and is in love with Ivan. But Joanna is the owner of the dance studio where they are teaching. Joanna was born with physical damage on her legs, and she was jealous about Sabrina's perfect life when they were kids. Once she got a chance to dance with Ivan, she falls in love with him. However, Ivan somehow notices Joanna's thoughts. In order to take the dancing studio away from Joanna, he decides to propose to Joanna suddenly after finishing the dancing performance on a show. After witnessing the whole scene between Ivan and Joanna, Sabrina felt so depressed and cried. At the meantime, she noticed that there is an innocent young man sitting next to her. Sabrina felt in love with him at first sight, because she felt that Beck is a quite simple young man and could provide her more of a sense of security than Ivan.

In the realm of love, each of them (Ivan, Sabrina, Joanna) walks a different path. On the road, they keep growing, pursuing, and repeating mistakes. Love seems like something could make you always recognize yourself as a reflection in other people. For them, love is an ever-lasting pursuance without ending. None of them get what they want at the end.
