Plot

"Prosperity Hall" is a Chinese medical hall located at a corner of a HDB flat serving residents of different backgrounds and ethnic groups in the neighbourhood. "Prosperity Hall" was first founded by Huang Datong's (Zhang Wei) father. Datong is semi-retired and his daughter-in-law Shen Ping An (Xiang Yun) takes care of the everyday operations of "Prosperity Hall". Ping An's husband died at a very young age and she has to shoulder both the medical hall and bringing up her six children. Her vast knowledge in Chinese medical is well known in the neighbourhood and many people show up at the hall for her medical consultation. Datong's elder son, Huang Yuanhao (Marcus Chin) and his wife Lin Shuzhi (Lin Meijiao) open a fruit stall near "Prosperity Hall", idling their days away. The only thing that motivates them is plotting Ping An's downfall so that they can get a share of ‘Prosperity Hall" for themselves. They are constantly creating trouble and distrust within the family. They have a son named Huang Zihao (Shane Pow) who is a lazy and spoilt young man. Datong does not trust them to takeover "Prosperity Hall" and decides to let Ping An manage the hall. But what bothers Datong is who can succeed Ping An? Ping An is not only busy with "Prosperity Hall" but is also concerned about her six daughters; Ziting (Belinda Lee), Zishan (Tong Bing Yu), Zijun (Dawn Yeoh), Ziyu (Tracy Lee), Zihong (Julie Tan) and Zixin (Michelle Wong). In addition, Hong Yingxiong (Desmond Tan) appears in the sisters’ life and becomes Datong's disciple. He sponsors Yingxiong's study in traditional Chinese medicine and even encourages him to pursue Zihong in the hopes of having him as a grandson-in-law and subsequently, his successor. However, Yingxiong's sudden appearance at "Prosperity Hall" raises questions; is he here to learn more about traditional Chinese medicine or does he harbour an ulterior motive?

Prosperity Hall holds a 50th anniversary celebration. Zihong (Julie Tan) stops Yingxiong (Desmond Tan) from hitting his son. Screenshots of Yingxiong and Zihong appear on a tablet. Slowly, the screenshot also shows Zijun (Dawn Yeoh) and Xiaoqiang (Jeffrey Xu). Zihong and Yingxiong pass by the fruit stall, which is owned by Yuanhao (Marcus Chin) and Shuzhi (Lin Meijiao). They later appear on a plate, with their son, Zihao (Shane Pow), and his friend, Lan Baojie (Romeo Tan) on another plate. Zihong and Yingxiong pass by the manicure shop, where Xiao Tiantian (Yao Wenlong) is about to leave with a trolley. In the manicure shop are his brother, Xiao Fangfang, who is singing karaoke, and their employee, Megan (Jayley Woo), who all appear on a photograph in the drawer.
