    • Synopsis
    • Xu Zheng – who bears a facial resemblance to Chaplin and has the same elastic expressiveness – plays Ou Dawei, a down-on-his luck con artist and trickster who peddles himself as a ‘conjurer’. It’s a quack’s life if ever there was one, but his rakish ways are stopped in their tracks when one day, he is approached by an eight-year-old girl, Diu Diu (Zhang Zifeng) who claims to be his daughter. When his partner-in-crime Wenxue (Wang Taili) cuts and runs with the money for an upcoming performance, leaving Ou high and dry, he must find a way to do the show without her – and with his daughter in tow.
