Storyline

A young lady has taken the place of caring for her two younger brothers since the death of their mother. She is content with putting her life on hold whilst she cares for them until one day when she meets an old classmate and her father proposes marriage to a colleague. She's unsure what kind of stepmother her father's new bride might make. Will she be mean and cruel like the woman across the alley or will she be kind and benevolent? What about her new beau? Will the family accept him and can the two work everything out? Written by Joseph P. Ulibas

A Good Film With A Good Cast
3 May 2009 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This is a Cathay film, which at the time released many movies like this. Generally, the stories were about young people getting closer in their relationships, with something always happening to cause problems in that situation. That being said, the films have almost universally been good to great. Such care was taken in the production and the stories always held your interest. Like Grace Chang and Linda Dai, Lucilla You Min is a beautiful lady and here she plays Jinghui, a young lady who cares for her two young brothers, as her mom has passed and her father works. She becomes closer with Chaun (Kelly Lai Chen, who has played variations of this role many times and is a good, natural actor), and they begin their relationship. Jinghui's dad also becomes close to Quihaui, a pretty co-worker, which scares the boys who are quite happy with Jinghui and do not want a stepmother. There's also a next door neighbor who beats her stepdaughter, which adds fuel to the fire for the boys not wanting a stepmom. The acting is uniformly good and this was one of Lucilla You Min's last roles. I don't know exactly how many Cathay films I've watched over the last 2 years, its more than ten, but I recommend them all. There is much heart in this film and I recommend it.
