Movie Info

A comedy about losing your footing and regaining your balance, the film follows the trials and tribulations of a struggling Chinese opera troupe. After a performance in a rural town, the troupe is informed by its director that their sponsorship money has gone missing. Now left without funds, the troupe must disband, at least for a while until money can be raised. Each performer is forced to take on odd jobs to make ends meet, adding friction to their already bumpy marriages and friendships. Ma San, whose wife is desperate to leave China for a better life in France, attempts cock fighting with his prized rooster. Liu Bing opens a photo studio with the help of his in-laws, and Sihai sells stolen puppies while waiting for his wife Sumei, the troupe's diva, to return from seeking work in the south.
