Randolph, an American operative, has been sent to the imperial city on a secret mission. He makes progress until he meets a Chinese woman named Chinadoll, his would-be adversary and lover. As Randolph plunges deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness that was once the most beautiful city in the world, he finds his life imperiled, even as he begins to unravel the mystery of a piece of old home-made film, and a beautiful woman who seemed to have vanished into thin air.

Broadway Blog

"A shadowy world of intrigue, sex, money, bloodshed, torture, politics, and secrets. Sounds promising. But, with uninspired direction, uninspired casting, and an uninspired script that’s both obtuse and lacking in dramatic torque, the 105-minute production creeps when it needs to race. The tension sags—even during a Mexican standoff—and when the big reveal arrives you couldn’t care less." Full Review
