The plane brings back not only graduated children from England, but also their lovers. Then why are parents from both sides unhappy? Like a color version of the North-South comedies from Cathy, this is the greatest civil war on earth between the rich and the poor, featuring the Cantonese comedian Leung Sing-po - who sings and argues in Mandarin as the rich dad! The trouble snowballs when his daughter (Ching Li) is stuck between her quarrelsome parents and when the father of the poor family starts worrying about the musical talent of the son (Chin Feng). Can staging a death pact like Romeo and Juliet end the prejudice? Can setting up a final judgment in hell leads to happy ending? This film is also noted as the final work of director Chun Kim.
