Pleasant and unpresumptuous, this modest comedy drama is about Elaine (Lucy Sheen), a young female lawyer in London and how she tries to do her duty by executing the last will and testament of a Chinese VIP. The heirs to the man's fortune argue among themselves, creating more headaches for Elaine as she tries to figure out the will. At the same time, Elaine finds herself attracted to the eldest heir, Mike (David Yip), and eventually Elaine and Mike enter into a romantic liaison. Meanwhile, another problem surfaces; the deceased insisted he be buried in his native village in mainland China, but no one wants to accompany the body.
