WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Shen Te, a prostitute chosen by three gods as an example of shining virtue, opens a tobacco shop to serve factory workers, only to find herself exploited by dossers, drug dealers and even the pilot with whom she falls in love. Her only solution is to adopt the ruthless persona of a male cousin, Shui Ta, whose hard-heartedness enables her to survive.
