Dong Dong, born and abandoned in a Beijing public toilet, is called the God of Toilets. He is a lesser member of the pantheon of local gods and spirits who incarnate various aspects of life. At 18, he goes in search of a miracle drug to cure his dying grandmother. In spite of its unusual beginning and circumstances, the boys story is a global one as Chan interweaves the films earthier theme with its nobler one: the attempt to defeat death, using every possible means, in the name of love. (Giovanna Fulvi)
