An art gallery hosts a retrospective of the work of a legendary Chinese dissident artist who was imprisoned in a Chinese detention center for a single work of art. Recently profiled in the New Yorker, the artist himself is present and shares with patrons the details of an ordeal that defies belief. A labyrinthine exploration of truth, art, social justice and cultural appropriation ensues, where nothing is as it first appears. Prepare to be outfoxed by “one of the smartest, most cynical, heart-wrenching, brain-teasing comedies I’ve seen in a long while” (Philadelphia Inquirer).
