Three women chase, seduce, resist and fantasize about each other. A Hong Kong that is as fake as real provides the perfect setting for their games, secrets,screams and tears.
“Made-in-China Chan” (in Chinese: Chan Kwok Chan)works as a stripper in cyberspace but she often has headaches. Her only solace is from her mother who is clueless about what her daughter does for a living nor what she is thinking. Nicole has money and power but she depends on “Made-in-China” to play with virtually at night in order to get some sleep. Zero does not have anything but she knows what she wants and is determined to get it. Three women meet in a Hong Kong somewhere in the future. How do their desires manifest themselves in this forbidden city? From totally different backgrounds, they look like they have very different problems but do they?
