In Shanghai during the 1930s two women become close friends. The intense friendship borders on the sexual, though this is left ambiguous. Finally one of the two marries, leaving the other to choose her own path. The film's slightly surrealistic style and evocative score suggest memories

rather than actual events and powerfully convey the characters' emotions. Director Stephen, who plays one of the protagonists, was originally from Hong Kong but emigrated to Canada. Shot on location in Paris, the film achieves an authentic look of the Orient.
