Her husband's sudden death threw her in an empty house rife with sadness. Suffering from loneliness in her prime due to this sudden loss, her golden moments were fleeting away. Her man left her nothing but a plot of land, his horse and his solemn spirit tablet. Ever since, she never took off her mourning dress and her face was awash with tears every day, in mourning of her beloved. It became such a routine that she kept the mourning hall for three whole months. That persisted until a burst of knocks at the door one day. Following that was a man's voice. Looking at each other, he saw the burning passion underneath her makeup.
Performance in Chinese, with translation into Romanian and English.
