Miss Du Shi Niang stars the amazingly beautiful Michelle Reis as Du Shi-Niang (or To Sup-Leung in Cantonese), a famous Ming Dynasty prostitute who decides to chuck it all for love. Despite being ultra-popular in her profession, Miss Du longs for a true love to whisk her away, a label she quickly attaches to hunky young scholar Li Jia (Daniel Wu). Fooling him into thinking he's had a one night stand with her, Miss Du proceeds to charm and worm her way into his heart and life, a task which seems incredibly easy given Michelle Reis' fabulous bone structure. Liu agrees to try to free Miss Du from the clutches of the brothel mamasan Ye Cha (Lydia Shum), but his efforts prove futile. He doesn't have the money or the apparent guts to get the job done, so Miss Du attempts to do it all for him - with the understanding that he truly loves her. Sadly, that understanding might be a miscommunication at best, and an outright lie at worst. But even in defeat, Miss Du proves to be a stronger, and more devious opponent than she seems.
