Yeung Fan writes and directs this melodrama about Rose (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk), a beautiful orphaned teenager who has boys pursuing her by the boatload. When she decides to study in France, her overly protective brother Charles (Chow Yun-fat) begs her to return to Hong Kong. Instead, she marries one of her fellow students and eventually has a daughter. Later, Charles dies of a long painful illness. Grief-stricken, Rose gets a divorce and returns to her family home. One day, she meets Ga-ming, who is the spitting image of Charles (and who is also played by Chow). A passionate, if creepy, relationship ensues only to be complicated by the return of an old flame from her school days.
