Performance Introduction

Discovered their stepmother Sam-chun’s affair with Tin Wong, Li Kwai-chi and her younger brother Bo-tung must escape. Kwai-chi’s father Li Ki, a horse merchant, comes home and asks the maid Chun-fa for where his children are, but is unable to tell so because of the order from Saam-chun. With the guilt she can’t bear, she escapes it all with a rope on roof. The two involved in the affair seize the opportunity to accuse Li Ki of attempting to rape Chun-fa which causes her death. They even bribe the county magistrate to sentence Li Ki to death.

On the other hand, Kwai-chi is adopted by the Lau’s family. Later, she marries the magistrate of Baocheng County, Chiu Chung, whose sister Lin-chu looks alike Chun-fa. Lin-chu hears Li Ki crying in the prison and notifies Kwai-chi of it. She then finds out the false accusation on her father, she mourns it to her husband Chiu Chung. Chung prepares the petition for her in no time, calling for the inspector general on the court.

The inspector general turns out to be Kwai-chi’s brother Bo-tung. With Lin-chu disguises as Chun-fa’s ghost, she succeeds in frightening the two into admitting their crime. Finally, not only the father’s innocence is proven, Li’s family are also happily reunited with Bo-tung marrying Lin-chu.
