In the 2008 global financial crisis following the Lehman Brothers collapse, feared and respected CEO Miss Chang (Sylvia Chang) prepares to list her billion-dollar company on the stock exchange. Chairman Ho Chung-ping (Chow Yun-fat) — once their mentor, now her ally and lover — has promised her a wealth of shares in the company when it goes public. But when an audit exposes layer after layer of covert power plays and backroom dealings, it seems that the Chairman's promises may not be so easy for him to keep. A stylish, fascinating musical boasting a unique mixture of intrigue, romance, and humor OFFICE is a rare treat you won't want to miss.

"This boardroom tuner charmingly mines humor, romance and no shortage of eccentric lyrics from the world of spreadsheets and stock portfolios, but its real achievement is a formal and conceptual one, conjuring a tongue-in-cheek vision of modern capitalism in splendidly Brechtian terms"-Justin Chang, Variety
