Four teenagers in a wealthy girls' school are involved in the school's production of "Romeo and Juliet," directed by the savvy Jackson (Leslie Cheung) the lead from the boys' school who also plays Romeo. The girls' lead, Juliet, is played by the innocent Ting-ting (Chou Hsai-lan), and she rapidly falls for Jackson. The Romeo and Juliet of the play become lovers in real life, but their love story does not otherwise parallel Shakespeare's protagonists. It seems Jackson has a wandering eye, and Ting-ting has some tough choices looming on her horizon.
