A typical everyday HK movie fan Wing idolizes the beautiful female singer Rose and her producer Sam as the fairy tale couple.

Rose (Lau) & Sam (Cheung) are a superstar singer and her brilliant manager. They are also lovers. Wing (Yuen), a spunky and resourceful young woman, is one of their biggest fans. When Sam holds a contest to find a new male pop star, Wing cuts her hair and ... you can guess the rest. Misunderstandings and love triangles!
"Tootsie" & "Victor, Victoria" are two movies that deal with similar issues of gender and fame, and this movie is just as entertaining. Anita Yuen is very good (& attractive) as BOTH a boy and a girl, and it's easy to see why Sam and Rose fall for her. Leslie Cheung sings a terrific song called "Chase," and Carina Lau makes a great bossy diva.
