A generational portrait in the form of autobiographical flashbacks
in which Wu Haohao returns to his high school and university years
at Taiyuan and Chongqing to try and shake himself and people his
age out of the apathy that seems to be gripping them. Motivated by
a desire to re-awaken an entire generation from the stupor of life spent
in front of a computer screen, he interviews his companions about
the meaning of their existence, about life and love, as he tries to find
collaborators for his project to make a film inspired by the cinema
“This film is fragmented, both in content and in style.
This film is revolutionary, both in China and in the world.
This film is narcissistic, because I think I am great!
This film is dead, because love is gone and gone forever.
This film is innocent, because it’s merely a dv product.
This film is full of hope, because it’s not finished yet.”
