Spectacular music and literature have been written for men and women who committed suicides in the name of love. The Butterfly Lovers, Romeo and Juliet, Madame Butterfly, Princess Changping and her consort Zhou Shixian as well as Yu Fa and her lover Sub Yee Siu are all up against each other in The Greatest Suicide For Love, an underworld contest not unlike The Voice. Through song and dance, cat fights and most of all, a divine belief in their sacrifices, these neither folks hold nothing back to claim the winning title and be truly immortalized.
