The film, whose title plays on the meanings of an ancient Chinese game and on the creative elements of filmmaking, is an excursion into the maze of allegorical naming. It ponders questions of power and change as related to the contemporary shifts of culture and politics in China, and as refracted by the Tiennamen Square event.
