Rarely could you find a landlord as amiable as Yee Chau-shui in Hong Kong. Cheung (Cheung Ying) and Kwong (Hung Sin Nui) are Yee’s tenants of shoe-box rooms who bicker over a partition without ever meeting. One day, the two have a chance encounter at the bus stop, both embarrassed by their own reduced circumstances, they begin a romance posing as rich folks to each other. Yee is adorably hilarious as the henpecked landlord who would go as far as smuggling his wife’s electric iron just to win a drink or two.
