A revealing portrait of contemporary China in the post-Marxist era, exploring facets of socio-political life in China within a context of globalisation and individualisation. Personal stories unfold with an unexpected straightforwardness and a striking sense of humor: An old peasant has lost his land, a millionaire speculates with a mate in a stock exchange office, a young migrant has come to the big city to wash cars, a weapons factory worker wishes Mao was still alive, a successful hotel owner praises the government's liberal economy policies, young kids dream of becoming famous western artists.
In this film, there are many faces and voices. They are like archives documenting our history and our present. And as much as they reveal about the ancient hardship of the Chinese peasant, they also show the newly gained material desire, the cold-hearted indifference towards social responsibility, resonating with New China Nation's desire to be a leading part of the global capitalist landscape. (Guo Xiaolu)
