A humorous look at Chinese tradition colliding with modern sexual values, RED LIGHT REVOLUTION is the story of an ordinary Beijinger who opens a sex shop to make ends meet, sparking a sexual revolution in his conservative neighborhood. Shunzi, like many men of his generation, is a hard worker who simply can’t afford to provide the type of life his spouse desires. When he is fired from his cab company, his wife promptly leaves him and throws him out of the house he bought her. With nowhere else to go, Shunzi returns to his parents' traditional courtyard home for solace.
As money pressures rise, Shunzi’s parents urge him to forget about “face” and take any job that will have him. So, unbeknownst to his family, Shunzi decides to step behind China’s new “red curtain” and secretly open an adult shop.
But when the neighborhood watch discovers that Shunzi has been operating without a permit, Shunzi faces the threat of losing everything. Shunzi and his neighbours have a choice: accept defeat, or fight for the shop that has unexpectedly united the community.
