Echoing the The Godfatherand set in the world of the Taiwanese elite, this decadent gangster drama has a strong feminist twist. 

 

Lying, deceiving, making underhand deals and appeasing the Taiwanese elite: these are just some of the talents of the matriarch Tang Yue-ying, a modest-looking widow who will do anything to maintain and extend her power and wealth. She certainly needs these skills when she is connected to a scandal about the purchase of a piece of land. Especially when her two daughters – the rebellious Ning and the obedient Chen – indirectly become involved in the gruesome slaughter of a family of friends, a massacre that also seems to be related to the corrupt case. An extravagant mix of soap opera and thriller in which women rule the roost. The sets and costumes are stunningly beautiful and two strange musical narrators offer relief as soon it becomes difficult to follow all the intrigues and scandals. Major winner at the Golden Horse Awards in Taipei.

 

愛,是世界上最重要的事?棠府,住著三位不同世代但同樣熟稔人心的女性。沒有男人的棠家,一向由棠夫人(惠英紅 飾)主持大局,在權貴間穿針引線,個性如刺蝟般的大女兒棠寧(吳可熙 飾),為求母親肯定,強忍配合演出,乖巧的小女兒棠真(文淇 飾)多半靜靜觀察,唯母命是從。直到某天,棠家密友慘遭滅門事件爆發,三人各自被牽扯其中,一向以大局為重的棠夫人,為了守護一切,用盡心機,卻讓三人最後走向截然不同的命運…。
