In 1920s China, a young man (Li Wei) falls innocently for his tyrannical uncle's third wife Ju Dou (Gong Li), and they embark on a forbidden romance. But the truth will out, with tragic consequences. In the confines of the uncle's dyeing factory, the story's cruel logic is offset by an intense beauty and eroticism. Exceptional filmmaking from the director of 'Red Sorghum'.
