In this off-beat love story from a typical Hong Kong perspective, Alan Tam plays a young insurance investigator who almost runs over a beautiful woman while he is on his way to his engagement party. Rattled and at the same time fascinated by her beauty, she stays on his mind. The next day, he is sent to a house to find out about an accident in which a woman died in a fall from the roof -- and it turns out to be the same woman he had almost killed. This coincidence sets the stage for what follows next: the dead woman's ghost appears to the insurance investigator and they fall in love, lending a new meaning to ephemeral emotions. When his friends and family find out what is going on, a real battle with the supernatural and natural begins -- and the big question is whether love, even if as unsubstantial as this, will win out in the end.
