One day, simple countrywoman Kwok Yun sees a UFO - a giant glowing thing in the shape of a dumpling! Later that same day, she also helps a snake-bitten American, who disappears as mysteriously as the UFO. The ambitious village leader Chief Chang uses Kwok Yun's unexpected events for political gain.
