Synopsis

Beijing, 1902. While Master Ren, owner of the Feng Tai Photo Shop, prepares for a formal portrait of China's most famous opera star, Lord Tan, Tan's daughter Ling exchanges furtive glances with Ren's chief photographer, Liu. Meanwhile a foreigner named Raymond Wallace hopes to make a fortune with a crude movie theater he names Shadow Magic. Liu's fascination with useless and disapproved foreign gadgetry leads him into a double life working for both Ren and Wallace.
