    • Synopsis
    • This romantic comedy with an absurd streak is made in China, but starts out in Norway. Wen Chen, an honest insurance company salesman, has travelled all the way from China to look for a woman named Lu Shen (Yiyan Jiang). The two have enjoyed a rather carefree relationship together, where Wen, being Lu's «fake boyfriend», eventually fell victim of her never-ending series of bizarre challenges. In Norway, Wen bumps into a taxi driver who recognizes Lu as «the Chinese girl in the mountains», and the two of them set out to find her.
