All's Right with the World describes a few families in HongKong. Their tragic fates are different in approach but equal in effects, making the audience wander who's who and what's the relationship between them when viewing the film.
As a matter of fact, the sole relation is that all five families receive comprehensive subsidies, while each story has its own development. They may have different reasons to be poor and different living conditions, but they share a similar state of existence, almost accustomed and adapted to poverty.
Their ways of celebrating the Chinese New Year is described, which have many differences and similarities to the typical New Year celebration.
