Movie Info

Simple woman Kwok Yun leads a peasant's life in the peaceful mountains around remote Three-Headed Bird Village. One day, after a countryside tryst with a married man, Kwok Yun sees a UFO - a giant glowing thing in the shape of a dumpling! The ambitious village leader Chief Chang uses Kwok Yun's unexpected events for political gain. She stimulates tourism with UFO tours and gets the local economy roaring with progress. Busy aspiring to strengthen relations with the USA, she is blind to the dangers such radical change can bring, especially to the environment. She is promoted and groomed for a bright new future by pushy Chief Chang. But Kwok Yun's heart is whispering that she's destined for something more than the government's power-hungry plans... -- (C) Official Site

The serio-comic technique and ping-ponging aesthetics ultimately make for a winning approach.
