The film is set in an old-style house in Mengjia, an old district of Taipei. Rebellious teenage girl Laichun, now 16, lives with her extended family. Her extended family is made up of her father DarkFace, an immigrant from Kinmen Island, his sterile wife Xuefeng, his fertile “second wife” Zihua,an aged grandfather, Laichun’s younger sister Lairi, and Dark Face’s autistic younger brother Jie.The family runs a small restaurant in a shopping arcade. Right after Laichun’s “second mother”gives birth to a third child, Laichun finds that she is pregnant as well. Yet Laichun’s irresponsible boyfriend runs away after Laichun informs him of her pregnancy. While the scandal sweeps the entire family, Laichun’s drunkard-father falls ill due to liver cancer. The father’s first wife, always bossy and dominant, also collapses as a result. The father’s second wife, a female gangster in her twenties, now has to take on the responsibility of stabilizing the entire family, on the eve of Laichun’s childbirth.
