Summary "Mrs Lee realises that her husband is having an affair with a young masseuse. She wishes to regain her youth and beauty so she goes to Aunt Mei for help. Aunt Mei makes dumplings by using placenta and foetus obtained from Shenzhen's abortion clinic as fillings. The progress of regaining beauty and youth is slow and Mrs Lee asks for a better recipe. Aunt Mei tells her an unborn baby of 5-6 months old is the best ingredient but it is hard to get. In the meantime, Kee, a young girl of 15 years comes with her mum to ask Aunt Mei to do an abortion. Kee is carrying her father's baby. Aunt Mei does the abortion and uses the foetus for Mrs Lee's dumplings. Directed by Fruit Chan, and stars Mariam Yeung and Bai Ling.
