Kwok Yun is an agricultural worker in China, single and not too happy with her life. One day she suffers a circulatory collapse which enters the village’s chronicle as a UFO sighting. The communist mayor of the village appears ready for the new times as she designs a UFO-sighting-monument and builds hotels. Tourism’s/Capitalism’s marching in is triggered in the region. An absurd sociocritical satire about today’s China, and by the way: Udo Kier has an appearance as American.
