A typical everyday HK movie fan Wing idolizes the beautiful female singer Rose and her producer Sam as the fairy tale couple. By chance she posed as an amateur male singer and moves in with 'his' new producer Sam. The no-nonsense Wing develops a great friendship with Sam, but screws up Sam's love life with Rose. Written by

Rose (Lau) & Sam (Cheung) are a superstar singer and her brilliant manager. They are also lovers. Wing (Yuen), a spunky and resourceful young woman, is one of their biggest fans. When Sam holds a contest to find a new male pop star, Wing cuts her hair and ... you can guess the rest. Misunderstandings and love triangles!
"Tootsie" & "Victor, Victoria" are two movies that deal with similar issues of gender and fame, and this movie is just as entertaining. Anita Yuen is very good (& attractive) as BOTH a boy and a girl, and it's easy to see why Sam and Rose fall for her. Leslie Cheung sings a terrific song called "Chase," and Carina Lau makes a great bossy diva.
