    In 1920's China, Peking opera was luxurious entertainment for the privileged class-but only children from the poorest families were sent to opera schools to train as actors. Xiao Douzi is brought to an opera school - and abandoned there by his mother, a prostitute who can no longer care for him. With seeds of bitterness sown in his soul, the nine-year-old boy endures hardships and misery to learn and perfect his craft.
