In a change from the usual action film, this story starts with the marriage of a young, uptight female martial-arts champion, Cheng Tai-nun (Hui Ying-hung) to an elderly and very wealthy landowner. The marriage is in name only, and takes place at the wishes of the old man expressly to keep his estate from falling into the greedy and unscrupulous hands of his brother. Tai-nun inherits his estate when he dies, and is soon in Canton, staying with her older nephew by marriage, Yu Cheng-chuan (Liu Chia-liang), and his young and attractive son Yu Tao (Hsia Hou). When the traditional and conservative Tai-nun, a woman from the provinces, runs into the modern and Westernized Yu Tao for the first time, the sparks fly and the comedy of cultural clashes begins. As the relationship between the two young protagonists of the old versus the new takes its own jaunty course, the evil brother steals the deed to the dead husband's estate, and the action begins. Tai-nun gets to showcase her martial-arts talents, as her views of the world slowly begin to change. (allmovie.com)
