A match made in hell is the subject of filmmakers Andrew Gurland and Huck Botko's surreal satire, a dark comedy that shows the lengths some men will go to for the companionship of an attractive woman. Arriving in America from Burma, mail order bride Lichi (Eugenia Yuan) finds herself married to a recluse doorman from Queens (Adrian Martinez) who treats her more like a domestic servant than a companion. The events that follow are extreme examples of lust, betrayal and revenge, all shot in a mock documentary format to give a sense of reality to the comically sad and sordid tale.
