About The Good Person of Szechwan 

A trio of gods arrive on earth to see if there are any good people left in existence, if not, they seek to rewrite their commandments and re-make the world. Meanwhile, in a chaotic modern metropolis, it’s every man for themselves, and Shen Te is doing all that she can to survive. 

When Shen Te is visited by the gods she is rewarded with a life-changing sum of money and craving stability, opens a tobacco shop…but the struggle is far from over. Forced to question the price of her own survival, Shen Te resorts to scheming and deception in order to get by in this gruelling capitalist nightmare.
