Synopsis

The child Zhou Hong and Mr. Xue Lian have to leave the last historical district left in the big city of Chongqing, which will be destroyed to build a new neighbourhood. Forced to abandon what has been their home until then, the narrow streets of the Shibati district are testimonies of the most traditional and historical China, which is about to disappear.

The destruction of old quarters in China is an expression of the urban, social, and cultural policies of a country where the old, traditional and historical must give way to the new, contemporary and soulless. A reflection on the ever-changing contemporary China which is losing little by little its history and legacy.
