CHINGLISH is the new comedy about the challenges of doing business in a culture whose language-and ways of communicating-are worlds apart from our own. An American businessman arrives in a bustling Chinese province looking to score a lucrative contact for his family's sign-making firm. He soon finds that the complexities of such a venture far outstrip the expected differences in language, customs and manners - and calls into questions even the most basic assumptions of human conduct.
