The movie had a sad story, as sad as its heroine.

The movie originally run about 140 minutes. However, due to the protest of Fu Jie (Fu Yi's younger brother), the movie was cut short, and some key sequences were lost during the cut. But still this is a very good movie. Both Pan Hong and Jian Wen are in top form here.
