Ko Ching Man, who is driven by vanity, participated in a beauty pageant although her mother, Cheung Lai Hung, a retired former actress, opposed that. She won the pageant and launched herself into instant super-stardom.

Tong Ho Yee, a budding new actress, feels that Ching Man threatens her rise and decided to switch to another TV station to seek a fresh breakthrough. However, her decision to switch is not supported by Deacon Chong her production assistant friend.

Leading actress, Leung Chin Fung is bitter rivals with Lai Hung. When she learns that Lai Hung's daughter, Ching Man's career is booming, she offers to be Ching Man's mentor. Little does Ching Man realise that Chin Fung is bitter and is plotting her downfall bit by bit.

Chin Fung is afraid of aging and injects herself with illegal substances to "preserve" her beauty but instead the substances caused her face to change. Her facial changes caused her contracts with a cosmetics company to be terminated. Ching Man was later selected to replace her, much to Chin Fung's dismay. She not only lost money to Ching Man but her Best Actress Award (which she has won for numerous years) is fast slipping out of her hands. Chin Fung vowed to exert revenge on Ching Man for all the pain that she has caused her.

The Beauty of the Game tells the story of Ching Man, Ho Yee and Chin Fung and their quest for fame and fortune. They are determined to achieve their dreams, no matter the cost. However, the road leading to their dreams is filled with obstacles, one after another and has thought them the meaning of true beauty.
