Dressed as a boy, Hsiao Ping meets up with down-on-his-luck magician & playboy Tzu Hsin, who her father told her to stay with after his death.  Not particularly pleased about the (as he thinks) unexpected male company, he still takes Hsiao Ping with him & soon sets up camp in an abandoned mansion (since he has just been thrown out of his appartment), only to realize, the boy with him is actually an attractive girl. When he throws her a birthday party the next night, the real owner of the mansion, grumpy millionair Lin, shows up unexpectedly. To get out of the mess about him illegally throwing a party at the place, Tzu Hsin makes up a lie about Hsiao Ping being the long lost granddaughter of Lin - which actually works as a way of escaping. But the lie has left deep repercussions in Lin's mind, & as he is terminally ill, his niece Yu Lan persuades Hsiao Ping to stay with the old man for comfort - a plan also supported by Tzu Hsin, who sees himself standing in the way of her career ... of course though, by now he's truly & deeply in love with her (& she with him), but they can't find to each other yet. Matters are complicated by Lin's accountant, who soon squeezes money out of the rich man, lying that it is for Tzu Hsin - which Hsiao Ping bellieves though, until Tzu Hsin can persuade her of the actual truth. Then Hsiao Ping & rich Lin have a fight though, & she consequently decides to move out, until he sugffers from a stroke & her saving his life in the last minute & also telling him about his accountant's misdealings. The old man, touched by all that, decides to finance his niece Yu Lan's musical which is to star Hsiao Ping, & even hires Tzu Hsin as production manager. But Tzu Hsin's seedy past catches up with him in the form of some gangsters blackmailing him, making him embezzle the show's revenues. As it turns out, Lin's accountant is behind the whole affair, wanting Tzu Hsin to be arrested by the police - but with the help of Hsiao Ping the plan backfires in the end & now nothing stands in the way of a happy ending for Hsiao Ping & Tzu Hsin.

 

Colourful & highly stylized musical full of kitsch - as musicals are supposed to be (at least they usually are). Quite nice, if you are into that.
