Pavilion of Women


Set in China shortly before World War II, the story revolves around a 40-year old woman who, tired of her husband's sexual appetite, gives him a young woman as a concubine. This young woman is very appealing to the couple's 20 year old son. Just to complicate matters more, there is also an English priest involved, there to tutor the son, but who is attracted to mommy...
