It’s Magic! It’s Art! It’s tragedy and transformation. The King of Masks is a poignant tale about an aging master of the opera art form bien lian, where silk masks are changed so quickly that it appears to be magic. He searches for an heir to pass down his talents and skills, but tradition dictates that this secret art can only go to a male heir. He buys a child from the black market to become his grandson and apprentice, and a series of bizarre events render the relationship unbearable until love unmasks a power strong enough to defy everything, even death.
