The metropolis looms in the night. No people, just scattered lights, sounds of cars, murmuring. A resolute woman talks of the good old days, while two young students are looking for their identity and place in this complex world. Even in the opening tracking shot, Stephan Knauss’s documentary illustrates a Chinese metropolis in transition. Between concrete desert and nature, old and young, tradition and departure, beats and emotion – always on the lookout.
