A well-made copycat of "C'est La Vie, Mon Cheri". Anita Yuen is an unwed mother who struggles to survive in a competitive company. The good news is, the boss of the company (Lau Ching Wan) falls in love with her and helps her out any way he cans. The bad news is, the second boss of the company is her ex-boyfriend who will stop at nothing to get rid of her, her son, and the other boss while he's at it, in order to protect his money and power. Great theme song by Faye Wong in her Cantonese remake of the Mandarin song "Yong Xin Liang Ku" by Zhang Yu.

Summary: NULL

Sai Ming Jun (Anita Yuen) was doing just fine as an office administrator until the Zao family took over; turns out that one Zao brother, the decent one (Lau Ching Wan) is falling in love with her, while his older brother had fathered her only child. The family complications are a tad contrived, but its reflections on the concubine system (which exists to this day) and family politics make this a very tense feel-good movie.
