king of peking

Big Wong is a movie fanatic, and wants Little Wong to be one too. Sadly, Big Wong’s ambition outweighs his achievements. He’s a lowly cinema janitor, struggling to earn enough to keep custody of his son from his estranged wife. In the dawn of the digital age, he finds a way of making and selling pirate DVDs — with Little Wong’s help. They bond over their ethically dodgy business in this affectionate tribute to the golden age of film.
