In Shanghai of the '30s, Shuhui (Wang Lei) brings together Manzhen (Wu Chien-lien) and Shijun (Leon Lai), and the two fall in love. However, Shijun's parents in Nanjing have planned for him to marry wealthy Cuizhi (Annie Wu), who instead becomes romantically attracted to Shuhui. Manzhen is concerned about the reputation of Shijun's older sister, prostitute Manlu (Anita Mui).
