The story talks about an Italian engineer went to China fixing a defect of an old Italian steel-making equipment. This movie shows real people’s life (if not all, at least some) and the changing of society during the rapid development of the country.

A peak inside of China through a great journey. It's possible to collect subtle elements of the Chinese culture while you follow the dynamics in the attempt of bonding between a Italian engineer and a Chinese young woman. Political subjects pop up once and while in a ton of contemplation towards a superpopulated country in transformation. Amazing photography when it comes to landscapes.
