    • Synopsis
    • Former math prodigy Brian Fong (Andy Hui) is now a math teacher in a primary school, living the life of an ordinary man until his wife’s suicide plunges him into depression. Unable to take care of his dog, Brian decides to leave it with Beloved Pets, where he befriends the founder Jasmine Tsang (Janice Man) during his visits.

      Jasmine comes from a rich family and though she lives a worry-free life, she has yet to find its meaning. Under pressure from her family, she agrees to a marriage of convenience. A week before she’s to marry Vincent Lee (Lam Ka Tung), who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, she gets cold feet, partly due to Vincent’s history of womanizing and partly because she can’t get her mind off Brian. On a rainy night, she decides to leave the city and look for Brian in the country side to find out if he shares her feelings. Only then will she have a reason to try to live the life she wants. Unfortunately, Brian is unwilling to commit.

      Having been rejected, the heart-broken Jasmine drives home alone when she is attacked and passes out. When she finally comes to, she is shocked to find herself stark naked and locked up in a room. During her confinement, her captor doesn’t seem to sleep at all and she often hears the theme song Nessun Dorma from Puccini’s masterpiece Turnadot…
