Critically-acclaimed Chinese director Zhangke Jia divides this sprawling snapshot of the changing face of his homeland - from nascent capitalism to raw economics - into three episodes. He begins with a love triangle set in Shanxi Province featuring Zhao Tao, then moves onto the present where her former suitor (Liang Jin Dong) has cancer and returns home after working in the mines. The third section heads into the future - 2025 - and the Chinese community adrift in Australia.
Director: Zhangke Jia
