Guangdong, China. The economy is racing forward, carrying the sex industry along with it. Taking as their watchword “the customer is king”, the idealistic boss of Chang Eh Sauna and his hard-working employees seek to transform their enterprise into a modern “entertainment kingdom”. Director Zou Peng, aided by master cinematographer Yu Lik-wai, offers a stylised and dreamlike take on the artificial universe of the brothel, together with sharp ironies about the mindset of the entrepreneurs of the new China.
