During the Eastern Jin Dynasty, parents dress a pretty girl like a boy, so she may be educated in a local boarding school. There, she falls in love with a poor, but industrious young man. However, their short love affair ends in disaster.
I'm not usually a big fan of romantic comedies, they generally place people in such improbable circumstances. However, this is more than just a romantic comedy. There's exploration of several characters and their lives, not just the two lovebirds, and it adds to the story rather than draws from it. There is the _Pretty Woman_ improbability problem to deal with, but the movie is so fun, it's not a big problem.
