Fong (Stephy Tang) and Edward (Chu Pak-hong) are a cohabiting couple who both work in Golden Plaza, a mall known for its wedding-related businesses. When Edward is eager to tie the knot after eight years of relationship, Fong is left scurrying to fix a long-buried secret: she is still in a sham marriage with a mainlander, which was arranged ten years ago when she needed money. Fong tries to fix the problem with her fake husband, who agrees to jointly file for divorce but only after she helps him in getting a one-way permit. But when the secret is later exposed, all the grievances accumulated over the years between the engaged couple, as well as their disagreement on the idea of marriage, also surface. This triumphant debut by Norris Wong Yee-lam, the winner of Hong Kong Film Awards' Best New Director is a contemplation on the notion of love, marriage, and personal freedom from a Hong Kong woman's perspective. The female protagonist shows her insights and courage to mend and find new meanings in her life. With its clever, layered script and witty dialogue, the film authentically and effortlessly portrays the complexities of modern love, explores today's marriage culture and the possibility of establishing a life-long relationship that is based on mutual trust and respect.
