In China the conflict between rich and poor has been taking place a long time.  The under world of gays, emerging musical stars combined with poverty give this film a unique view into the day in the life of inner city people surviving the temptation of suicide. The art of poetry interacts within the plot and helps drive this film forward. As we are drawn into each of the characters lives we see that life in China is o different then any were else.
