A quartet of women become cabaret hostesses in hopes of building a better future for themselves in this intensely personal drama from director Michael Mak. Despite the fact that she comes from a broken home, May (Maggie Cheung) cares deeply for her mother and takes the job in hopes that she can provide the support that her ailing mother desperately needs. Little does she know the job will also find her involved in an impossible romance. Gigi (Cherie Chung) accepts the job in hopes of bailing her husband out of jail, though the happiness she hoped to find with him upon his release is short-lived when he embarks on an extramarital affair. A veteran hostess, Porsche (Do Do Cheng), is disheartened when an old flame reappears, though his intentions are far from the future she had in mind. Finally, Margarita (Hu Ching) may have the reputation as an ice princess, though few people can see the true beauty that lies deep within her tough exterior. In our journey through the lives of these four lost souls, we witness their journey to where they are today, and get a glimpse of what may come of them in the near future.
