In this contemporary comedy, Yuet Wah (Pak Suet-Sin) is the daughter of an ever alcohol drink seeking father (Wong Cho-San). She goes to work for an electrical shop owner, Cheung (Yam Kim-Fei, in another cross-gender role) who thinks she's the daughter of a well-to-do Tsui (Leung Sing-Bo). Cheung falls for Yuet Wah but she is embarassed of her lower class standing and discourages him. A series of events leads Tsui's wife (Lam Miu-Miu) and Tsui to suspect each other of infidelity with Cheung and Wah, respectively. Eventually everything is sorted out in time for a happy ending.

A bright, engaging and fun film. Lam Miu-Miu and Leung Sing-Bo are especially delightful as the bickering couple.

There are four songs, including a final dream sequence with Pak and Yim in the clouds singing a song as the Heavenly Maid and the Cowherd.
