Synopsis

Hong Kong, 1962. Chief editor of a local daily newspaper, Chau and his wife move into new accommodation in a building mainly inhabited by the Shanghai community.
He soon meets Li-chun, a very beautiful young woman who has also just moved in with her husband. She is a secretary in an export firm, and her husband is a representative for a Japanese company, which means that he is often away on business trips.
As his own wife is often away from home, Chau spends more and more time in Li-chun's company. As their landlords are good friends, they often meet for games of mahjong or to discuss the latest gossip. Chau and Li-chun become friends but, one day, they are forced to face facts: their respective partners are having an affair...
