An impotent overseas uncle from the US (Lok Kung) returns to claim a son to raise as own per old village custom. Since his nephew, Tak-Sun (Cheung Ying Tsoi), and wife, Chi Sum (Nam Hung), only has one son, the uncle proposes getting him a concubine to bear another son for him. Of course, Tak Suns wife is not too happy at that prospect. The proposed concubine, Yip, already has a fiance (Cheung Ching), though he is too poor for Yips mother to agree to their marriage. Chi Sums friends devise a plot to fool the uncle. The ploy becomes more and more complicated as pregnancies and false pregnacies pile upon each other until the eventual final happy ending.
The film shares the same Chinese title as Chor Yuens later Diary of a Big Man starring Chow Yun Fat. Now if someone would only release Part 1 on video.
