In a small Chinese fishing town, two teenage girls pledge to be man and wife to one another: so begins Taiwan-born Huang’s revolutionary treatment of same-sex love in a traditional community, which has the best friends sheltering one another against a hidebound society that considers them only as property. An enormously moving and ultimately heartbreaking work, and a landmark feminist film, produced for Cosmopolitan Film Productions Co., a part of the Shaw conglomerate, after the Shaws temporarily suspended film production in 1987.
