Monty (Ji Jin Hee), a muse, appears in Shanghai with a mission: he yearns
for a taste of genuine human emotions and puts himself out as a beacon
for lost souls, drowning in the bitter sea of love.
Also arriving at the same time, in Shanghai, is actor, Lin Jian Dong (Takeshi
Kaneshiro), the star in a new musical helmed by renowned director, Nie
Wen (Jacky Cheung). Lin's co-star, Sun Na (Zhou Xun), is an old flame
from a decade ago. Sun is in a relationship with Nie, who made her a star.
When the ex-lovers meet at a press conference, Lin is hurt by Sun's indifference
The musical they are both acting in is about a love triangle: an amnesiac
woman who forgets everything, even her lover, is saved from the streets
by a generous circus owner. The two fall in love. Later when she recovers
her memory, she finds herself torn between her past and present. The musical
features Lin and Sun in leading roles, with the director Nie as the third
part of the triangle. Nie is unaware of his two stars' previous relationship,
and the analogy reflected in the musical. As Lin and Sun spend more time
with each other on the set, the nostalgic romantic memories of their past
begin to overwhelm them...
A decade earlier, Lin is a film student at the Beijing Film Academy meets
Sun who is performing at a local bar. He is a thrifty student. She is
a songstress down on her luck. The two lonely hearts soon find each other.
However, Sun's ambition ruin the relationship. She leaves Lin for another
man, one who can make her famous.
They are now the hottest stars of their generation. Passions are rekindled
as the production of the musical progresses, helped along by a passionate
kiss in the screening room. Nie is devastated to discover the truth, but
realizes true love cannot be denied. Painfully he decides to withdraw.
Sun accepts Lin's suggestion to restart their life together in Beijing,
little realizing that Lin is simply seeking revenge for the heartbreak
of being dumped. He wants Sun to suffer just as he suffered. However,
Lin abandons this plan realizing he can never leave or harm her. But sadly
for Lin, Sun's love towards Nie has not altogether faded. With the trio
in the throes of jealousy, hatred and passion, Monty, who has been observing
them quietly, decides to intervene by appearing among them, and teaching
them about the true meaning of life and love...
