A besotted boyfriend (Shih Chun) and his girlfriend (Chin Mei) plan to marry with both their families’ blessings. Not until it’s time to formalize the engagement does it come to light that thirty years earlier the boy’s father and the girl’s mother were romantically linked. As new love blossoms, an old love is rekindled. This zany 1960s romantic comedy is living proof that Taiwan was turning out films every bit as hilarious as Sorry That I Fell in Love with You as far back as the 1960s!
