English and Chinese with English subtitles

Filmmaker Xia Tong explores the loneliness and turmoil that often mark the transition to a new country. His blend of poetry, memory and dreams, intercut with overheard conversations, street festival chaos and news bytes about the illegal Chinese migrants off the BC coast, create a devastating portrait of the isolation and identity loss often overlooked in the celebration of multiculturalism.

Award(s): Best Fiction Production, Canadian Student Film & Video Festival (Montreal World Film Festival)
