    • Synopsis
    • A young filmmaker returns to China from study abroad, speaking French on the phone. He journeys from the bustling metropolis of Shanghai to a remote monastery on Tian-Mu Mountain where he’s reunited with his mother after a tragic fire. A subtle, intimate and mysterious study in contrasts that touches on family, loss, guilt and creativity. Here is a China in transition, with confusion and alienation along with the steady beat of Buddhist chants.
