After her father’s death, 19-year-old Songlian (Gong Li) is forced to marry the lord of a powerful family. 50-year-old Chen has already three wives, each of them living in separate houses within the great compound. The competition between the wives is tough, as their master’s attention carries power, status and privilege. Each night Chen must decide with which wife to spend the night and a red lantern is lit in front of the house of his choice. As each wife schemes and plots to make sure it’s hers, things get out of hand.
Based on the novella Wives and Concubines by Su Tong.
