A wealthy man and a beautiful and hard-working woman fall in love and then face their class distinctions in this romantic melodrama from director Michael Mak. Irene Wan plays an attractive nightclub hostess struggling to support her small baby and two siblings. One day a good-looking young man (Andy Lau) who works in a hospital comes into the club and eventually, the hostess and he fall in love. When she goes to his home to meet his exceptionally wealthy parents, she is overcome by insecurities about her own impoverished background and lack of education -- and the first possible rift between the two lovers begins to form. Portrayed with more honesty than the usual Hong Kong commercial film, this story does not overindulge in the histrionics common to most melodramas.
