Based on a true story, the film depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984, at the outset of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign. The National Union of Mineworkers was reluctant to accept the group's support due to the union's public relations' worries about being openly associated with a gay group, so the activists instead decided to take their donations directly to Onllwyn, a small mining village in Wales, resulting in an alliance between the two communities. The alliance was unlike any seen before and was ultimately successful.

The service actually locates a 5'8" Chinese woman who sings Western opera, speaks five languages and has a single PhD.

Besides helping Wei-Wei, Simon and Wai-Tung hope that this will placate Wai-Tung's parents.
