Chaos@Chungking.Mansions: You can check in, but you can't check out...
A flight is diverted from Shanghai to Hong Kong and three passengers, Rajesh (India), Paul (USA), and Luna (Indonesia), are thrown together for three days in a cheap hotel in Chungking Mansions. In this play the gritty reality of everyday life in Hong Kong's ethnic neighborhoods is played against the vulnerability of Hong Kong's elite rich and famous. This cultural clash comes to a head when the bumbling hotel manager, Sunil, orchestrates a botched kidnapping of the fictional daughter of a real Lee Ka-Shing, a Hong Kong billionaire real estate developer and philanthropist, and Rajesh, Paul, and Luna find themselves in the middle of the crime scene. They learn that in the great megacity of Hong Kong anything can happen, and does happen.
