A lowly waitress rockets to fame in the Hong Kong underworld as a result of her sexy cabaret act and one shocking act of violence in director Sherman Wong's outrageous action comedy. Har Jay was a mere waitress when she became romantically involved with a handsome young customer, but her life gets endlessly complicated when the selfish lover gets her pregnant and then refuses to help care for the baby. This is one woman who's not about to go down without a fight though, and after enlisting the aid of sympathetic police detective Guan to deal with the unresponsive father of her child, the waitress and the cop soon fall in love and marry. After landing a job at an exclusive nightclub and gaining a notable reputation for training inexperienced girls, Har Jay makes the troubling discovery that one of her dancers has seduced her husband. Now driven into a jealous rage, Har Jay does the only thing possible to ensure that her husband will never again make love to another woman.
