Several of Nu Nu Yi’s characters attend the annual Taungbyon Festival in honour of the spirits known as nats, which are central to traditional Burmese religious practice. There is Daisy Bond, a gay, transvestite medium in his fifties, his young assistant named Min Min who he has fallen in love with, and a beautiful beggar girl who threatens to steal Min Min’s heart. As they make their way through a week of ritual celebrations and spirit-channeling, each must face difficult choices and make difficult decisions.
