When college coed Saruul takes a temporary job as a clerk in a sex shop, her poker-faced indifference makes her the perfect foil for the shop’s clientele, who range from slightly sheepish and cautiously curious to downright perverse. But it’s the shop’s flamboyant, eccentric female owner who initiates Saruul’s journey into adulthood – taking her under her wing, teaching her the art of living, and gently guiding her on the path to self-discovery. This joyfully quirky, "candid big-city coming-of-age story” (Variety) from Janchivdorj Sengedorj, "one of the best voices of contemporary cinema in Mongolia” (Asian Movie Pulse), is fueled by a splendidly original script, utterly unique characters and unexpected encounters.
