Synopsis

Best friends Mickey and Gin Gin are young women scraping by in southern Taiwan. A headstrong tomboy, Mickey looks after her depressed mother, and spends her free time at the local temple, trying to join its all-male martial arts troupe. By contrast, sanguine and impulsive Gin Gin makes money dancing in nightclubs. When Gin Gin hatches a plan to rendezvous with her crush, Jay, in the city of Guangzhou, China, Mickey decides to go along, determined to locate the father who abandoned her and her mother years before. Almost immediately the two find themselves in over their heads, immersed in lawlessness and betrayal. But China also has a magical quality of new desires and pleasures that arouse Mickey's sexual-discovery. Through misadventures--some comic, some brutal--Mickey and Gin Gin strengthen their friendship and transform from rascally naifs into more mature souls with a clearer sense of self.
