Edith returns the abandoned items from Mui's house to its original senders after the death of the famous Cant-pop diva, Anita Mui in the late 2003. It revives five close fans' collective image and memory of Mui.
After her father died, a Hong Kong girl discovers she has two hitherto unknown sisters, one in Taiwan and one in China. To settle her father's debt, she must reunite with them to run the family's hot pot restaurant. While the androgynous Taiwan sister is plagued by her toxic relationship with her mother, the fashionista sister from China is trying to fend off her grandmother's pressure to get married. Meanwhile, she is striving to unshackle herself from her ex-boyfriend in order to start a new relationship.
A movie that seems to be telling the story of a hotpot restaurant, but actually contains a great political aspiration.
(1) For the first time I experienced that, all of the audienced didn't even stand up until the end of the film fully played. It seems that all of the audiences are hongkonger except me.
(2) The audience sitting in front of me cried, they seems to be a family of three.
(3) I wish all compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Strait and in four places a happy Mid-Autumn Festival.
