A couple is torn by conflicting emotions in this drama from filmmaker Yao Hung-I. Jin (Oy Gin) and Mi (Nikki Shie) are two women living in Taiwan who have been lovers for some time; Jin is a singer in a rock band who suffers from severe mood swings and has been suffering from a fractured relationship with her mother (Lu Yi-ching), while Mi is the more sedate and level-headed of the couple. Jin and Mi have been together long enough that the initial spark has gone out of the relationship, even though they still care for one another, and the two have made an agreement that if one of them falls for someone else, the other will peacefully walk away from the romance. Hao (Tuan Chun-hao) in an old friend of Mi who has come home after a hitch in the military; after getting together, Mi finds herself deeply attracted to Hao, which echoes a recent visit to a fortune teller who predicted she would soon fall in love with a man. But is Mi certain enough in her feelings for Hao to break off her relationship with Jin, especially given Jin's recent instability? Ai Li Si De Jin Zi (aka Reflections) was produced by Hou Hsiao-hsien, who had previously worked with Yao Hung-I, frequently hiring Yao as his assistant director.
