Made without the cooperation of the Chinese government or official film organizations, this drama in three parts explores the emotional, social and political ramifications of gay relationships in China over the course of three decades. Part one, "Psalm," is set in 1981, and concerns Xiao Bo (Yu Bo), a gay man sharing a home with his brother and his sister-in-law. Unwilling to disguise his lifestyle, Xiao Bo brings his lover home one evening, and soon his family is attempting to "cure" him of his homosexuality. "Proverbs," set in 1991, finds a gay man inching his way out of the closet as he leaves his wife and moves in with the man he loves. Finally, "Song of Solomon," which takes place in 2001, reintroduces Xiao Bo, who is now in a relationship with Da Jian (Zhang Jian). When Xiao Bo learns one of his former lovers has contracted AIDS, he wants to help him however he can, but Da Jian would prefer it if he kept a safe distance from his past. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
