Kaohsiung city, southern Taiwan, the present day. After being hit by a heavy storm during a performance, the Tien Lung opera troupe returns to home base but is then hit by the sudden death of its veteran leader Lin (Lü Fu-lu). Later, after being knocked down by a scooter in the street, star performer Chun-mei (Kuo Chun-mei), Lin's daughter, collapses on-stage one night. Chun-mei's husband, Chih-hung (Chu Hung-chang) takes over the running of the troupe and Chun-mei is forced to recuperate in hospital. Chun-mei persuades her wastrel elder brother, Lin Cheng-yi (Wu Peng-fon) - a onetime talented performer who's turned to drink and broken up with his wife Hsiao Ching (Li Luo-ching), also in the troupe - to return and train the younger members. Chun-mei leaves hospital but is still unable to walk properly, despite the fact that there's nothing medically wrong with her leg. Afraid of losing their booking slot if Chun-mei can't perform, Chih-hung proposes to the scooter driver, Chuang Chi-mi (Kuo Chun-mei), who has the same facial structure as Chun-mei, to take her place on-stage. After a tryout in the suburb of Fengshan, the secret substitution just about works, though the nervous Chi-mi still needs a lot of intensive coaching. Meanwhile, Cheng-yi starts a romance with Shi-ying (Winnie Chang), an ambitious actress in the troupe, which causes more tension. And to prevent Chi-mi losing his day job as a street-cleaner, Chun-mei has to impersonate him in disguise.
