With a story as believable as a visit from the Tooth Fairy, this romantic comedy about a Cinderella-type woman (Maggie Cheung) and a slipper with a diamond is best suited to a young audience. After two thieves steal a valuable diamond from a dying tycoon, they run inside a store and hide it in a shoe, hoping to return later and retrieve the gem. In the meantime, a TV star (Cheung) comes in and buys the pair of shoes to wear with a borrowed evening dress she has to return before midnight. She is getting ready for a big society ball. Sure enough, she has to dash to the elevator to leave on time, and the diamond-studded shoe comes off in the process. The shoe is picked up by her Prince Charming, who does not have a clue as to its worth, and the chase is on.
