Southern China, the near-future, 2018. James Deng is ruggedly handsome, superficially charming, treacherous and cunning. A successful businessman in California and China, he moonlights as a covert secret agent and smuggler. He gives no thought to the potential consequences and is the perfect conduit for dangerous, destabilizing weapons and technology. Director Wang is the leader of the mysterious People's Joy Bureau headquartered in the hot, humid island city of Xiamen in Fujian Province, China, and James' most important contact with the local ruling elite. James recklessly begins an affair with Wang's voluptuous assistant, Lisa Kuo, an American-educated spy. She uses her contacts to set up secret meetings with potential clients, military officers, police and gangsters, in exchange for sales commissions. Business is very good but Wang's Army cronies uncover their deception? James and Lisa narrowly escape assassination and flee, becoming reluctant, desperate partners. James uses his weapons training, Wang's secret assistance and Lisa's remaining contacts to elude capture, but how long can he hold out? Southern China in 2018 is warm, beautiful and wealthy, ethnically diverse and culturally rich. The historic city of Xiamen forms a lush textured backdrop for the Perfect Man for the Job.
