Naive but idealistic Robert Lomax (William Holden) decides to leave his stuffy American life behind and set out for Hong Kong, where he believes he might able to make it as an artist. Robert is unprepared for the culture shock. When he finds a cheap hotel that seems relatively safe and cheap, he rents a room for a whole month and is not sure why the hotel owner, Ah Tong (Andy Ho), seems so surprised. Eventually, Robert begins to realize that most people only stay in the hotel for an hour or two, since it is a popular destination for prostitutes and their clients. Unfazed, Robert hires a pretty and mischievous prostitute, Suzie Wong (Nancy Kwan), as his artist's model. As the two work together, Suzie slowly opens up about her past, and Robert finds himself falling in love. Since Suzie is also pursued by Ben (Michael Wilding), a wealthy client, and Robert is pursued by Kay (Sylvia Syms), a respectable banker's daughter, the two find their path towards romance difficult and uncertain.moreless
