Synopsis

In 2009, the director enjoyed an unforgettable self-driving tour in northwest Guangdong, China. He revisited the same sites with his college roommate in 2016, meditating on the ideas of people, places, and serendipity. Narrated in colloquial Cantonese, this personal road film operates on a topography of memories, reconstructing and retelling the travellers' youth as well as the hidden histories of the Pearl River Delta region.
