YesAsia Editorial Description

In Taiwan, highways and roads frequented by long-haul drivers are often lined with brightly lit stands selling betel nuts that provide a buzz when chewed. The betel nuts are usually prepared and sold by scantily clad young women called "betel nut beauties." Director Xue Xianjian (Echoes of Time) explores the work and world of the betel nut beauties in Betelnut Girls, starring Peggy Tseng (When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep), Paul Hsu (Office Girls), Doris Wang (Days We Stared at the Sun) and variety program regulars Hondulas (Miss in Kiss) and Bruce Chen (Lion Dancing).

Li Zhen (Peggy Tseng) works as a betel nut beauty at night in order to support her family. Even when faced with threats and temptations, she never lowers her head. Greenhorn officer Kang Wei (Paul Hsu) is in charge of policing the betel nut stands, but he is reluctant to fine the betel nut beauties when he sees how hard they work every day. Regularly crossing paths because of their conflicting professions, Li Zhen and Kang Wei begin to develop a close relationship over time. Life affords Li Zhen little respite, however, as she struggles to deal with her father's gambling debt and the harsh words thrown at her.

街頭最爭議的風景
一層玻璃 兩個世界 唯有愛 能打破它

禁錮在玻璃櫥窗裡的靈魂 街頭最彪悍的美麗身影!

麗珍(曾珮瑜 飾)個性彪悍堅韌,平日出入簡樸,晚上則化身火辣的檳榔西施在霓虹閃爍的檳榔攤上班。老闆(洪都拉斯 飾)為人熱心,體諒麗珍養家活口的心酸,總是大方協助,這是麗珍不幸人生中稍感安慰的遭遇之一。儘管周遭誘惑威脅不斷,她卻從不曾低頭,夜夜以無害的美色媚眼提升檳榔銷售業績。

每當華燈亮起,公路旁的檳榔攤就開始騷動。身為菜鳥警察的康偉(許騰介 飾) 就得騎著摩托車到上級指派到轄區,挨著每家檳榔攤巡視監管,由於長期與西施們的接觸,對於小人物的委屈有所同感,默默藏進心底。所以,儘管西施們偶有違規,但總狠不下心開出罰單。

他與麗珍因為職業關係開始有了交集,儘管彼此個性反差極大,卻在不打不相識的情況中,開始了交往,並很快地進入彼此的生活之中。警察與西施職業本質的對立,開始在親密交往之後面臨考驗。 鄰居與親戚間的冷言閒語開始侵襲匯集,此時賭性堅強的父親(陳為民 飾)找到了麗珍住處,厚顏的留下賭債爛攤,一向越挫越彪悍的麗珍與低調體貼的康偉,在面對社會與生活的層層壓力,能否仍擁有選擇權為自己開啟幸福?
