At a posh society event, waitress Sandra Ng
watches transfixed as a glamorous couple glide across the dance floor.
She instantly develops a crush on the male half of the couple and
determines to enroll in his dance class.
Andy Lau is the object of her attraction -- a
popular dance instructor who dreams of owning a studio in a glamorous
skyscraper and competing in the world championships in England. The
opportunity to realize his dreams comes in the lovely form of Anita Mui,

give her lessons and ‘make her happy.’ Andy is happy to accept,
especially when he sees the amount of the pay-off.
While Andy romances Anita, Sandra harbors her
crush on Andy and also develops a friendship with Anita. Will all three
