In a dystopian future, the Earth has stopped rotating and the Asia region is constantly facing the sun. The society is divided into two class system: Cronius who controls everything and what remains of the resources and Commonus who are poor and who has to depend on Cronius for everything. The intense and perpetual sunlight destroys the people’s eyesight and they need to have a restorative eye surgery every nine years. But the “Permit” to have the surgery is controlled by the Cronius and Commonus have to slave away their lives in order to acquire the Permit. Meanwhile, a murderer is killing the prostitutes and taking their eyes out. In the relentless heat and blinding sunlight, a pimp tracks down the killer and, in the process, discovers something more sinister and sordid along the way.
Although ‘futuristic’, the story is based on the social conditions of Myanmar (Burma) during its time under the 50+ years of military dictatorship.
This film also marks the return to the screen by the Burmese legendary actress May Wynn-Maung who now resides in Los Angeles.
