A single professional woman in Taipei age about 30 (Rene Liu) has placed an ad searching for a husband. The movie is mostly her interviews with the suitors, though her painful past and present emerge gradually when she talks with a professor and leaves messages on her former lovers answering machine and as well as a few flashbacks.
Best are the scenes with the mostly weird men who answered the ad.
