A colourful story in which the pomp and circumstance of the traditional Cantonese opera are ideally used. A daughter always had a great admiration for her mother when she went on stage in her costume and performed as a singer. She hoped one day to be as majestic on the stage as her mother and example. But for her mother, that isn't enough. She forces her daughter to be even more majestic.
