Synopsis

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you woke up in someone else’s body? What if you also got to be fifteen years younger and fifty pounds lighter, with all your money troubles behind you? But what if you had to choose between your handsome lover and your rich husband, when both turned out to be strangers with secrets of their own? “Beatrix Reincarnated” is the ultimate “what if” story. On the New Year’s Eve of 2011, Beatrix Lin, a twenty-eight-year-old overweight and lovesick junior financial analyst from New York finds out her boyfriend has been cheating on her and dies in a freak accident shortly after midnight. With a little mix-up in the Underworld, she is reincarnated into the body of a beautiful thirteen-year old Lin Bee-Er, daughter of the powerful Right Prime Minster “Lord Toad” in a hypothetical Sheng Dynasty of ancient China. Bee-Er / Bea is thrust into a blind, arranged marriage with a pimple-faced teen she nicknames “Rudolph”, son of the equally powerful “Prince Terminator”. She soon realizes her in-laws’ feudal polygamous household contains all elements of a modern dysfunctional family, complete with a stern, violent military dad, spendaholic desperate housewives, an alcoholic gambling addict, and a confused and angry Emo-boy. She must maneuver between jealousy and backstabs of her new husband’s concubines—neurotic poet “Tooth Fairy” and the seductive but lethal “Carmen”. With her sharp business sense and her gift in marketing, she has to rescue the family’s failing finance while scheming against in-laws who behave like evil characters out of the movie “Horrible Bosses”. She must also face “Loverboi”—the old Bee-Er’s lover, a mysterious boy with formidable martial art skills and a shady past. It is a tale of passion and revenge, set in a swashbuckling olden China and told in the style of Bridget Jones Diary. It is also a step-by-step playbook on how a modern, white-collared woman takes on an ancient, feudal familial hierarchy by applying her skills on corporate politics. In the end, this is a story about how a self-confessed loser of the “game of hearts” finds true love again, and again.
