Synopsis

The youthful Vicky is torn between two men, Hao-Hao and Jack. At night she works as a PR person at a night club to support both of them. Hao-Hao keeps vigilance over her all the time, no matter she is on or off the job. He checks her charge accounts, telephone bills, mobile phone records, and even her body odor in an attempt to trace Vicky's activities. She cannot stand him any longer; she runs away. Hao-Hao finds her, begging her to go home. She sets herself a deadline to end the relationship - when the $500,000 in her bank account is used up.
NT$500,000 settled (burned away) a love affair.
At the same time, Jack makes diversified business investments. His open-arm policy to anyone in need of his help has courted some trouble. Vicky has already run to his place twice. Some degree of affinity between them began to take shape: it may lead to a still closer relationship or a permanent friendship...
