welcome to the nucleus

I have been trying for three months to get my partners to set up a scene with a young woman who looks like a walking razorblade speaking on her mobile about drowning polar bears looking for a floe to stand on, while in the background crumpled up in a bathtub in his underwear lies an oil executive bleeding to death. And of course the whole scene is done in Mandarin by an actress completely fluent in the language. Now I can send this post to my partners and curse in flowery language about how they kept asking, "Why Mandarin?"
