Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In order to make a place for themselves as young women in the man's world of Hong Kong, the two women in this story enter a beauty contest. One of them is a flashy gal with simple tastes and a ditzy approach to life. However, she really wants to be financially and socially successful. Despite her quirky, devil-may-care attitudes, she occasionally comes out with some unexpectedly wise remarks, which astound and please the second woman in the story, a co-contestant. When both women fail to make it to the final selection of the contest, they commiserate with one another and strike up a friendship. Where the one woman is fast and flashy, the other is quiet and low-key, but equally ambitious. Their friendship prospers for a while but is challenged when a Japanese playboy enters their lives. Fortunately, they are able to remain friends, and the threat of the Japanese man to their relationship is shown to have been an empty one.
