Young Iranian exile Ghaffar Pourazar, one of the few foreigners ever to have trained as a Beijing Opera star, travels together with the leading actors of the Beijing Opera troop to Islamic Teheran. Atheist, Chinese and religious Iranians have been making billion-dollar deals for years. But now for a first time Mullahs and Kung Fu-dancers meet on the cultural stage while the threat of an US led war looms.
