Ass Juice Maker

“You may be poor, but the one thing that nobody can take from you is the freedom to mess up your life whatever you want to. Mess up your life… Whatever way you want to…”

An original Hong Kong play depicting the daily vicissitudes of four adults in Hong Kong’s lower social rung. A delivery person struggling to make ends meet; a book worm with plenty of degrees but little else; a nervous wreck who stutters; and a desperate customer service representative in a shopping district. These four characters toil day after day and converge at one point, leaving indelible impressions and changes on each other’s lives.
