Zhang Yimou, the acclaimed Chinese director of JU DOU, RAISE THE RED LANTERN, and THE STORY OF QIU JU, spins an epic tale of greed, revenge and lust for power set against the Shanghai opium wars of the 1930's. The radiant Gong Li stars as Xiao, the most beautiful singer and prostitute in Shanghai, who becomes a pawn in the struggle between the powerful gang leader and his deputy, who schemes to take control of the city's underworld activities.
