The versatile and prolific Wang Feng both writes and directs this ensemble epic which united actors from both Shaw Brothers' film units and their television network, HK-TVB. The place to be is flat number 8 on the second floor of the Gossip Street apartment building, where all the neighbors gather to gossip. The sitcom turns serious when a local mobster wants to change the place into a gambling den - leading to a satisfying finale where hearsayers turn into heroes to save their neighborhood.
