Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Pop star Leslie Cheung stars in this maudlin melodrama as Louie, a spoiled pop star, who, at the film's outset, sleeps with beautiful dancer Anita (Anita Mui Yim-fong). The next morning, Anita tells Louie of her dream of becoming a singer. That night, Louie invites Anita on-stage and soon a star is born. Though clearly Anita has fallen hard for him, Louie is more interested in the leggy Julia (Joey Wang Tsu-hsien). When he learns that the eye of his apple is dating his dad, Louie cancels his concert and flees the country for Paris. There he shacks up with comely Vietnamese refugee Yuan Yu-shih (Cecilia Yip Tong), who suffers from a mysterious war wound. Though working happily as a restaurant dishwasher with his new love, Louie soon finds his previous life calling him back when Anita pays him a visit.
