Synopsis

Release Date:

September 28,2007

The World War II Japanese occupation of Shanghai in 1942 continues in force. Mrs. Mak walks into a cafe, places a call, and then sits and waits. She remembers how her story began in 1938 China. She is not in fact Mrs. Mak, but shy Wong Chia Chi (Tang Wei). With WWII underway, Wong has been left behind by her father, who has escaped to England. As a freshman at university, she meets fellow student Kuang Yu Min (Wang Leehom). He convenes a core group of students to carry out a radical and ambitious plan to assassinate a top Japanese collaborator, Mr. Yee (Tony Leung). Each student has a part to play; Wong will be Mrs. Mak, who will gain Yee's trust by befriending his wife and then draw the man into an affair. An unexpected fatal twist spurs her to flee. Shanghai, 1941. Kuang re-enters her life. Now part of the organized resistance, he enlists her to again become Mrs. Mak in a revival of the plot to kill Yee.
