Dir: Zhang Yang
(Hongkong, China/Chinese/97 mins/35mm/2007)

Co-workers Zhao and Liu, old friends both in their 50ís, were drinking heavily one day when Liu died unexpectedly. In keeping with a promise to his friend, Zhao decides to travel thousands of miles across China to bring the body home. With next to no money and a corpse on his back, Zhaoís odyssey brings him fae-to-face with all manners of Chinese people in a world of rapidly changing values and morals.
