Description: A former soap opera actress decides to eat a Mainland woman's special dumplings in her quest to obtain eternal youth. Trashy Mainland immigrant Mei is a former singer-turned-doctor-turned-abortionist whose patented dumplings provide a lifeline for Qing, a retired actress whose marriage to businessman Li has sexually stalled. What's now clear is that Li himself, who eats eggs containing chicken fetuses, is equally obsessed with maintaining his sexual allure. This leads him to also seek out Mei's services, with surprising results.
