Lavishly photographed, but the narrative is obscured by melodramatic performances. When his sister marries into a wealthy family, Zhongliang (Cheung) moves to the cloistered Pang family estate and carries on a complicated relationship with the mistress of the mansion, opium-addicted Ruyi (Li). Zhongliang leaves the manor to make his own fortune and ends up a gigolo and thief whose crime boss sends him back to the Pangs to seduce Ruyi and steal the family riches.
