When Zhao Shuxin loses one of his chess pieces, the black cannon, he sends a telegram to a hotel to ask them to search for it. The ambiguously phrased telegram rouses the attention of the authorities and Zhao soon finds his life turned upside-down. A satirical look at the bureacracy of the Chinese government.
