Filming Location
  Tubby shoeshine man Brother Wang (Li Kuan-Chang) shares a room with his best friend, rickshaw driver Brother Liu (Ai Chai-Choi). A fortune teller predicts Wang will strike it rich in three days, but Liu will die in 44 days. When Wang wins the lottery three days later, their celebrations turn sour when they remember the other half of the prediction. Wang decides his buddy should have the trip of a lifetime before he dies, and they set off around their beautiful homeland, the island of Taiwan. The naive working-class men experience a lifestyle of luxury for the first time and fall into many a muddle. Eventually, they return to Taipei, where Liu prepares to spend his final moments with his girlfriend, A-hua (Ke Yu-Xia). Second, Brother Wang and Brother Liu also launched at least seven sequels over the next few years. All starred Li Kuan-Chang and Ai Chai-Choi, who rapidly became household names. Most were made by the same team. In the process Taiwanese-language cinema's first movie franchise was born.
