Peking Opera Blues
In 1913, the political situation in China was turbulent. The separation of the country among warlords makes people have no means to make a living. Singer Sheung Hung (Cherie Chung) is a venal woman. She accidentally got pieces of jewels at a mutiny when she was performing a play at the house of Commander-in-chief. However she carelessly dropped the jewels on the cart of a theatrical troupe. Sheung followed the troupe and met Bai Niu (Sally Yeh) and Tsao Wan (Brigitte Lin). Bai was an enthusiastic performer not accepted by the feudal society and Tsao was patriotic. They grew up in total different ways with distinctive ideals. In this riotous environment, they met with one another to mark the best moment of their lives.
