Overview
The solitary and largely self-contained Augustin, an obscure young actor of bit-parts and advertisements, has but one ambition - to play the lead role in a Kung Fu epic. But hours of Kung Fu practice alone in his room are not enough. Augustin knows he must pack up and start a new life in China...or at least that part of China within bicycling distance: Chinatown in south-east Paris. There he meets Ling, a young Chinese woman who practices acupuncture, and little by little, Ling's needles awaken emotions in Augustin that his virginal body had never dreamed of. Where will this lead him ? To Kung Fu stardom, maybe not, but to another destiny, a quirky but logical continuation of the same dream.
