Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A filmmaker who's drowning in debt enlists a notorious gangster to bankroll the porno film that could resurrect his career in this irreverent comedy from Dream Home director Pang Ho-Cheung. Invited into a classroom to teach students about the fascinating world of cinema, worldly producer To Wai-Cheung (Chapman To) couches his speech in sexual innuendo and uses his legendary hit "Confessions of Two Concubines" to illustrate the producer's crucial role in the filmmaking process. As preproduction on his newest film gets under way, To plans to use 20-year-old aspiring starlet Popping Candy (Dada Chan) as a body double for the star (Susan Shaw), a porn icon who's long past her prime. But money is tight, and in order to shoot the film, To gets a loan from his embittered ex-wife that has some serious strings attached. But To still needs to secure more funding before the cameras can roll, and once he's introduced to an ostentatious mob boss with money to spare, he finds out just how far he must go in order to save his sagging career.
