"He who steals a hook gets hanged as a crook; he who steals the kingdom makes himself a duke" is a famous ancient Chinese proverb. This film interprets this concept via an interesting way. A thief, who steals money, is just a humble thief. But a politician, who uses gorgeous, false or meaningless words to foolish people, could occupy high seat in the modern society. Frankly speaking, it is ironic.
However, try to discuss serious political issues or human nature in a short film is usually not a good strategy, unless the film could be funny and interesting enough, but it is usually difficult. The motivation of people to see movies usually is to entertain them own. To deal with serious issues must be careful much more than usual.
