"Doze" Niu Chen-Zer（鈕承澤; born：June 22, 1966）is a Taiwanese actor, film director, show host, screenwriter and producer. As a film director, he is best known for this film Monga. His newly finished movie "Paradise in Service" is nominated by various International festivals.
Monga is named for Mengjia, an old district of Taipei which has long been the domain of the local gangsters. Mosquito, the teenage son of a single mother, transfers to a high school in Mengjia but is bullied on the first day, until the Prince Gang intervenes and saves him. Growing up with no father and no friends, Mosquito joins the gang for brotherhood and friendship. He learns the way of the streets from the gang and its founder, Boss Geta. He asks the young kids to fight for brotherhood rather than benefit, and to fight with fists and never with guns. However, a mainlander gang holds just the opposite values and plots to take over Mengjia. These invaders put the traditional values of Mengjia to the test, along with the gangsters’ friendship and loyalty.
