Hsiao Kang is the only son in an uncommunicative family. When his father dies, he and his mother participate in Buddhist mourning rituals together, but otherwise cope with their profound grief separately and alone, crossing paths only out of routine obligation. Meanwhile, Hsiao Kang returns to his job as a watch vendor on the streets of Taipei. One afternoon, a young woman insists on buying a dual-time watch off his wrist for her trip to Paris, and he eventually relents, despite his superstitious belief that it will bring bad luck to them both. His feelings for the watch, tied to his anguish over his absent father and perhaps a hint of longing for its new owner, quietly compels him to reset every clock in the city to Paris time. Inevitably, despite the seemingly fated, intersecting lives of these three lonely and desperate people, the remedy for their emotional void seems indefinably out of reach. The film itself is poetic, generously compassionate, and achingly bittersweet

Dort wird sie schon sehr bald von der alten Dienerin Ti über den Zustand der Familie aufgeklärt, deren Oberhaupt sich meist anderswo herumtreibt und vergnügt. Die Mutter unterdrückt ihren Kummer und kommt alleine für den Lebensunterhalt ihrer drei Kinder auf. Doch der Stoffhandel, in dem sie tätig ist, deckt die Bedürfnisse ihrer Familie kaum ab. Neben der anstrengenden Arbeit als Hausangestellte muß Mui sich auch noch die bösen Streiche des jüngsten Sohnes gefallenlassen. Insgeheim fühlt sie sich angezogen und fasziniert von Khuyen, dem Freund seines älteren Bruders Trung, der die Familie ab und zu besucht. Zehn Jahre später ist aus der kleinen Dienerin eine wilde Schönheit geworden. Unter dem Druck ihrer Schwiegertochter muß die Mutter Mui, die sie wie ihre eigene Tochter liebte, entlassen. Mui wird weitervermittelt, diesmal in die Dienste von Khuyen, dem gebildeten und unerreichbaren Mann, den sie schon immer im stillen liebte und bewunderte. Langsam kommen sich die beiden näher, und Liebe und Dienerschaft scheinen sich unentwirrbar miteinander zu verweben ...
