Storyline

In the wake of China's open-door policy in the early 1980's, Fujian was one of the first Chinese coastal provinces to be opened to the outside world. Many of the male residents opted to go abroad for work, leaving behind their wives and families. Two decades later, Fujian is a microcosm of Chinese modernity: there are palatial suburbs populated by lonely "remittance widows"; neon-lit discotheques frequented by karaoke kids; coastal villages inhabited by impoverished fishermen and city centers dominated by gangs, snakeheads and language schools acting as fronts for organized human trafficking. The Neon Knights-Amerika, Roppongi and their friends, so nicknamed because of the places their emigrÄ- fathers live-use their imported digital video-cameras to film wealthy remittance widows in trysts with their local lovers. They then proceed to blackmail the women, and use the proceeds to finance a night-life of drink, drugs, girls and karaoke. Amerika is the mastermind of the scheme, Roppongi ... Written by Anonymous

Many actual incidents occurred in real life
7 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

Though the story is fictional, the event described in this movie is real, and many cases actually happened in real life in China. In most of these cases, the blackmailers were caught and sentenced to serve times in jail, while at the same time, many families also broke up due to the affairs the lonely wives left behind.

What is not described in the movie is another tragedy of this (illegal) immigration: even when the wives left behind was finally able to go abroad to unite with their husbands, the marriage is already damaged and ended in divorce. Divorce in foreign land with unfamiliar custom took further tolls on the people involved
