Details

At the height of cold war tensions with the Soviet Union in the 60s, the Chinese government moved strategically important factories inland away from large cities, along with innumerable workers and their families. Set twenty years later, as China begins to open up to the rest of the world, Wang Xiaoshuai's moving follow-up to Beijing Bicycle tells the poignant tale of one such displaced family and the conflict that arises when 19 year old Qinghong finds love for the first time with a local boy, much to the disapproval of her father who dreams of returning the family to Shanghai.
