Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Not everyone would agree with the premise of this standard story of female bonding -- that divorced or single women are secretly longing for a male relationship -- but the camaraderie of the "Happy Spinsters Club" and the life of the heroine Liang Bo-yi (Cora Miao) are not as controversial. Bo-yi's husband is having an affair with another woman, and this is what propels her to ask for a divorce and join the "spinsters." Her marital woes are juggled with caring for her young son, maintaining an on-going relationship with her mother, and letting off steam with her friends. But is this the kind of life she really wants?
