Hello ladies and gentlemen

This film is a joint production

of MandarinVision and Creamfilm

with help from industry-acclaimed

Creamfilm Production Co.

We invited the industry's

notoriously difficult Miss Yeh

and Mr. Chung to act as producers

I'm the director

who saw it through to the end


Over the course of the film

I will from time to time

chime in with a few words

to share my own ideas

and explain the story

Please enjoy the film

I won't bother you for now

I'll appear again

when necessary


What the f*ck's that drumming?

The beat's all fucked up


You haven't even weighed it

Only 100?

This brick here

has thousands of bottles

and it's barely over NT5000

I drop more on the ground

than what you pick up

Come on


It'll be gone in one meal

Belly Button

My business used to be small

Now it's grown


I don't deal in your tiny volumes anymore

If it wasn't that we're classmates

I wouldn't take this

One hundred's not enough?

One hundred twenty?

How about I give you one fifty?


Sorry I'm late

Are you feeling better?

Yes, still a bit dizzy

Ma, how about

I ask the nurse to get you another drip?

All right

All right?


Could you please give my mother

another IV drip?

It's almost 5 already

We can't hook up another IV





How much longer?

Just a bit longer

You think I'm playing in here?

It's hot as f*ck

My underwear's soaked

Hot as hell

Your friend's here


You only come when there's food?


I took my mom to the health center

Work's almost over

Start cleaning up

In this factory, everyone shows

concern for a mother's welfare

It's a form of human considerateness

Pickle has temp jobs during the daytime

He works here as night watchman

He sweeps the factory

before everyone leaves

Froggy, what are you doing?

Be careful

Froggy, can you be nice?

You're making me deaf

What now?

Not happy with work?

No, no, no

Why's the Buddha head like that?

The one yelling in front

is the factory boss, Kevin

The one grabbing ass in the back

is Congressman Gao

and his assistant Valrie

Although Gao won't have many scenes

the story of his struggle

is worth our attention

Ten years ago

from street-level political organizer

he climbed to congressman

After his fifth consecutive election

the deputy speaker sent him

a fine mahogany table

But ever since Valrie arrived

Congressman Gao's mahogany table

suddenly grew a new panel

It's mainly for the benefit

of Valerie's work

When others conduct business

on the computer

Valrie hides underneath

and operates Congressman Gao's joystick

This room's dark as pitch

How can we get customers like this?

My boss said it would cut costs

There's usually no one here

Everything depends on the room inside


Young man, Make me some instant noodles

with egg

You still want that?

Thank you

Business is good today

It's getting by

One order of noodles

with one egg

Are you fucking kidding?

A grocery and game shop isn't enough

now we have to cook noodles too?

You think I can do this all by myself?

Belly Button loves crane games

It's hard to understand

why a middle-aged man

would take an interest in them

I always wanted to ask Belly Button

why he likes crane games so much

Crane games are like therapy

How're you and Little Orchid doing?

Another guy stole her

Who's the culprit?

A young factory worker fresh from the army

So impressive

He's very tall

and has a car

Having a girlfriend's just a waste of money

For you

going home and humping the wall

should be enough
