A sophisticated city woman visits her rural parents in Song Chuan's snapshot of the tension between tradition and modernity in modern China.
"After investigating the consequences of China's one-child policy in his impressive debut Huan Huan (2012), talented writer-director Song Chuan turns his sharply observant eye to the ever-widening gulf between urban and rural China. Song sets the scene brightly with Ciao Ciao (Xueqin Liang) returning to her village wearing flashy designer clothes and sporting a disdainful attitude toward 'all these hillbillies'. But maybe she's missing something here? As Ciao Ciao spends more time with her colourful family and gets to know a handsome local hairdresser, Song creates an enriching and highly entertaining study of people, and a nation, in changing times."
