Three Gods are on a journey to find out if there are any good people left on earth.

Only Shen Te, a good-hearted prostitute, offers them shelter. They reward her with money to buy a tobacco shop and turn her life around. Barely getting through the door, everyone has their hand out for help, threatening her chances to make a go of the business.

With her good nature further threatened by an unscrupulous suitor, her business-minded cousin, Shui Ta, arrives to protect her.

Please note this performance contains themes of an adult nature and language.
