Country China


Northern China, winter… An ordinary tiny town in Inner Mongolia - 9 adolescents, 2 kids, together with a group of indistinct adults. These individuals engaged in nothing live in a place where nothing happens. The story begins in a depressive location and fades out with a sudden panic feeling, just as their daily lives, and as the destiny prearranged for us.
