Luo Hongwu returns to his hometown in search of Wan Quiwen, the woman he loved and has never been able to forget. Told in two distinct parts, the first an achronological mosaic and the second a nocturnal dream, this is a dazzling and captivating look into the mind of one man's obsession. An opportunity to see China's most financially successful arthouse release in history. Surreal, human and poignantly familiar.
