It is a story of a young boy growing up too fast, and his magical journey that teaches him the value of life. The film is set in Hong Kong and revolves around a 10-year-old boy named Leung Lit-man (played by Andy Leung). He is a typical young boy who likes to play pranks on his classmates at school and gets bullied by older boys on the streets. He lives with his grandmother and his father, who is a workaholic and rarely spends time with him.

One day, while playing a prank, Lit-man discovers a magical pill that changes his life forever. The pill has the power to make him grow older instantly. He can choose the age he wants to be, and he can change back to his original age anytime he wants.

Lit-man starts experimenting with the pill and uses it to solve several problems in his life. He becomes stronger and more independent, and he stands up to bullies and gains respect from his classmates. He uses his newfound confidence to impress his crush, Lui Ching (played by Karen Mok), who is a teacher at his school.

However, as the story progresses, Lit-man realizes that growing up too fast has its drawbacks. His granny passes away, and he has to deal with the pain of losing her. His father also becomes critically ill, and Lit-man feels helpless because he cannot use the pill to save him. He learns that there are some things in life that cannot be solved by a magic pill.

Throughout the movie, we see Lit-man's character maturing and developing as he goes through different adversities.
