A story about lovers torn apart is showing at St James Cavalier this evening.

High school sweethearts Qiao Qiao and Li Xing are about to graduate from university when Li Xing surprises Qiao Qiao with a marriage proposal. Qiao Qiao, however, declines the proposal, offering rash arguments as to why she is not ready. Little does he know Qiao Qiao has a deep secret.

Nonetheless, they write a break-up agreement; if they are both single in five years, they will get married. They part ways and five years pass.

Believing Li Xing is still waiting for her, Qiao Qiao waits patiently for his call. But when Li Xing finally does contact her, it is to invite her to his wedding. Qiao Qiao is flabbergasted and is determined to win her former flame back at any cost, even though the secret that forced them apart lingers on.

This film is being organised by the China Cultural Centre.
