This lighthearted, Cantonese-language romantic comedy from Hong Kong stars Wong Cho Nam as Jack Lam, a wealthy stock trader who manages to hang onto the majority of his assets through the tumult of the 2008 financial tsunami. Unfortunately for Jack, however, his girlfriend, Chu-Chu, soon discovers his romantic infidelities and promptly dumps him. Left single and miserable, Jack runs into a mysterious woman known as Angel, who encourages him to think of others in lieu of merely thinking of himself; she reassures him that this magnanimity will lead to consistent romantic success. Thus begins Jack's new search for romantic bliss; scriptwriters James Yuen and Dennis Law divide the remainder of the film into three vignettes, with Jack slyly attempting to coax his way into the heart of a different woman in each segment.
