Programme Details

We pick up from where we last saw Jack, a computer game programmer, and Jackie, a security guard and divorcee, in the first part of their story, which ended with the two kissing amidst a song sung by Madonna. Now five years’ later, they are married. Jackie is a CEO of a security company, with over a hundred people working under her. Jack is a beer-drinking couch potato. Their marriage seems to be on the rocks for uncertain reasons - whether it is the re-appearance of Jack’s old flame, or for the fact that they are really not cut out for each other.  Jackie’s son Hang Jai adds to the complication of the situation by inviting Tommy, a dashing lawyer who has a soft spot for Jackie, to prepare the papers for the divorce between his mother and his stepfather. Spurred on by Hang Jai and Tommy, the divorce seems to be inevitable, and only signatures are required. But more storms are brewing in the cup. When Hang Jai’s intention of marrying for money to boost his business is known by his fiancee, Lu Mei, a girl from Hunan, China, which is famous for people with a fiery character, all hell breaks loose. The processing of the divorce has many hiccups, and Madonna’s "Like a Virgin" brings Jack and Jackie together again for another “one night stand”, as a result of which they are having second thoughts about divorcing. Five persons’ lives are at the mercy of the Great Unknown Hand, as questions keep popping up, such as “where do we go from here? ”, and “why is everything about me upside down? ” Amidst the chaos, the flickering flame of love keeps burning instead of dies out. When the last strain of the song fades away, Jack and Jackie discover that love means never looking back, and the curtain comes down amidst laughter and tears.
