In post-Ming dynasty China, Peony, a young girl betrothed to someone she has never met, observes a handsome man while hidden from view at a performance of the opera "The Peony Pavilion"--a work that has compelled young Chinese women to starve themselves to death--and, dead at sixteen, begins a transformative journey as a "hungry ghost."
