Synopsis

Daniel Cavanaugh, a Midwestern American businessman looking to score a lucrative contact for his family's sign-making firm, travels to the provincial Chinese capital of Guiyang, only to learn how much he doesn't understand: his translators are unreliable, his British-born consultant may be a fraud, and he is captivated by Xi Yan, a beautiful, seemingly supportive government official.
