Long synopsis : Fan is a beautiful girl from rural mainland China. Her visa has expired and she lives as a fugitive, her days spent in a Mong Kok alley scrubbing dishes. Fan is a silent observer, cut off from the wealth of the city around her.Yan is in Hong Kong for the same reason as Fan - money. She too lives in the seedy underworld of Mong Kok, where neon signs light the hectic streets, advertising sex.A world of cheap tricks and greedy pimps. As long as her visa lasts, Yan is a prostitute.Their paths cross when they witness an attack in the street. The weapon is a large, spiky fruit. A durian.Yan returns home ill at ease, estranged from her lover and her past; an outsider in Northern China's snowy desolation. Hong Kong lingers as a dangerous temptation, an awful dream.Then she receives a gift from Fan - a strange tropical fruit.The durian, that evil-smelling, sweet-tasting delicacy, links Fruit Chan's dispossessed characters: damaged children looking for the courage to hope in a hostile world...
