MANDARIN version with GERMAN subtitles

It's a gangster epic, a road movie, a melodrama - and a portrait of modern-day China.

Qiao (played by Zhao Tao), a young woman from a struggling coal-mining town, is in love with Bin (Liao Fan), a local mobster. During a fight between rival gangs, she fires Bin's gun to protect him. Qiao gets five years in prison for her act of loyalty. Upon her release, she goes looking for Bin. Their complicated relationship is unfolding against the backdrop of a country changing at a rapid pace.
