A homage to Godard’s 1967’s La Chinoise, this is a portrait of a young woman on a journey of self-discovery in 14 chapters. Mei leaves her home village in southern China after refusing a marriage proposal, and heads to the big city. After a tragic encounter with a hit man she arrives in Britain. Her decisions about places and men are impulsive and infused by an instinct for freedom. Mei is an existential character born from a hybrid Chinese-European cinema.
