CGiii Comment

Hao Chen has thrown his heart and soul into this film...

He approaches the justification of prostitution as 'survival sex' with an even-hand and a level-head.

There are moments that are profoundly moving...moments of violence, moments of deflation. Despite the work, there is a person functioning to get by...pride, dignity and modesty don't pay the medical bills!

An astonishingly mature film...from one so young.


Trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

In order to pay the bills, Hao Zhi Chen takes on a job in a gay massage parlor. As he starts to feel attracted to his clientele, things begin to fall slowly, and dramatically, apart. The film contains a scene of sexual violence.
