Taiwanese singer Jay Chou makes his feature directorial debut with this romantic tale following the romance between a handsome piano prodigy and a mysterious beauty. Yeh Hsiang-lun (Chou) is an exceptionally gifted pianist who has recently transferred to the Tan Jiang College of Arts at the behest of his father (Anthony Wong). One day, while walking through the school's soon-to-be-demolished conservatory, Yeh hears an intoxicating melody being performed by talented Lu Hsaio-yu (Guey Lun-mei). When Yeh asks Lu the name of the song, the pretty pianist shyly responds that it's a secret. Later pursued by female student Ching-yi (Alice Tzeng), Yeh rebuffs her advances to arrange a secret rendezvous with Lu that goes unexpectedly awry. In the aftermath, Lu disappears from the school, leaving the lovelorn Yeh reeling. Five months later, Yeh is performing at the school's graduation ceremony when he locks eyes with the long-lost Lu. While Yeh is determined to win Lu back, a secret from the past threatens to sink the prospect of a lasting romance between the pair.
