Storyline

The beautiful Cherie Chung plays the title character, an exercise teacher who is wooed by a rich, older businessman (Yuen Chor) and a young photographer (Tony Leung Ka-fai). You watch Cherie as she bounces between these two, not really liking the businessman, while the photographer is more in love with her image as his model than as a true love.
