A disturbing Oedipal melodrama from the apparently inexhaustible realm of Chinese cinema. Purportedly based on real-life events, this Northern Chinese gloss on Hamlet concerns a young man (Tuo Zhonghua) who launches an inquiry into the death of his father, charging his mother (Siqin Gaowa) with murder.
