After the death of their mother, Siok-Hui sings in a nightclub to support her younger sister Siok-Tshing, but her immature sister looks down on her occupation. Siok-Tshing then begins working in a pharmaceutical company where she has a crush on her colleague Bun-Pin. But little does she know that Bun-Pin has fallen passionately in love with her sister. It’s while attending a special celebration that Siok-Tshing finally finds out the truth. After drowning her sorrows in alcohol, she is forcibly taken to a hotel by a lascivious businessman obsessed with her sister. Siok-Hui rushes to the hotel, where she finds the man lying in a pool of blood….
Considered the forerunner of Taiwan’s “coming-of-age” genre, the film is a rich, original story written by LIN Tuan-Chiu. Centering on an accidental love triangle and a murder, the film crafts the two sisters’ story with captivating intensity, along with several comic elements, beautiful songs, and a splendid local parade that aroused laughter and tears among local audiences. While focusing on female characters, as in The Husband’s Secret (1960), the film also gives weight to a young woman’s emotional growth as the conflict between sisters is finally resolved with Siok-Tshing’s understanding and blessings.
