Q&A with Janchivdorj Sengedorj

When college coed Saruul takes a temporary job as a clerk in a sex shop, her awakening begins—but it’s not what you think. Her poker-faced indifference makes her the perfect foil for the shop’s clientele, who range from slightly sheepish to cautiously curious to downright perverse. But it’s the shop’s flamboyant, eccentric female owner who initiates Saruul’s journey into adulthood, taking her under her wing, teaching her the art of living, and gently guiding her forward on the path to self-discovery. This joyfully quirky, candid, clever coming-of-age tale is fueled by a splendidly original script, utterly unique characters, unexpected encounters, and, in the background, Saruul’s very own musical combo.
