Overachievers also marks the debut of Miss Hong Kong 2013 winners, Grace Chan (陳凱琳) and Sisley Choi (蔡思貝).
Unhappy about being under his father Elliot Yue‘s (岳華) constant and unreasonable control, Wayne is determined to break free from his family business to start up a company of his own. After many obstacles and failures, he receives help from Raymond, Nancy, and Edwin, and finally begins his cellphone application company. Desperate to prove to Elliot that he can become just as successful as him, Wayne prepares to confront his father on the business front.
On the other hand, Elliot’s second son, Raymond Cho, begins to lose his status in the family because of his idle and lazy personality. Taking advantage of this, Elliot’s second wife, Susanna, pushes her own biological son, Jason Chan (陳智燊), into becoming the company’s next successor. Although Susanna portrays herself as a loving wife, she is secretly conspiring to takeover the company for herself.
When Wayne finds out about Susanna’s scheming ways, he rethinks his relationship with Elliot and decides to team up with his uncle Power, Raymond Wong, as well as Maggie and her autistic son Fred Cheng (鄭俊弘) to fight against Susanna and take back Elliot’s business.
