The Peony Pavilion

Project Details

The Peony Pavilion is a re-imagining of China’s most cherished love story as a contemporary romantic thriller, written in collaboration with director Chen Shi-Zheng.  A mysterious young man crashes a party at the Beijing mansion of the powerful businessman Du Bao, claiming to be Mr. Du’s new son-in-law.  Mr. Du is outraged; his only daughter, Lily, died over a year ago.

As Mr. Du brutally interrogates the boy, and other witnesses come forward, a strange and wonderful story emerges – of a teenage girl who died for a dream, and then miraculously came back to life.
