      Beijing. Middle of the 90’s.
      Hong Tao, thirty years old, has moved from the countryside to Beijing where he works in a fancy restaurant. He lives since the Cultural Revolution with a strange secret. Back then, his father was a famous Mao’s portrait painter and, obsessed with the leader’s representation, started tattooing Mao on human skins.
      Hong Tao, oppressed by this heavy inheritance, wants to hide it. But a new wave of unscrupulous antique collectors is ready to do anything to get their hands on them…
