After her father's death a young Chinese girl enters into an arranged marriage with a wealthy man who already has three other wives. She is quickly initiated into the domestic ritual of the household, which for the wives centres around the raising of a red lantern outside the door of whichever wife the man has chosen to spend the night with. Jealousy festers when the new girl is established as their husband's favourite.
