Writer-director Zhang Lu’s fascinating window into a rarely
seen corner of rural China revolves around 12-year-old Chang-ho, living with
his grandfather and mute sister along the frozen river-border with North Korea.
Although fraught with unemployment and other tensions, his community seems
sympathetic toward the Korean refugees fleeing famine and misery; Chang-ho even
bonds over soccer with one young border-crosser who comes scavenging food for a
sibling. But he soon turns on his new friend as suspicions mount against the
illegal immigrants and his sister reels from unexpected aggression, provoking a
quandary over his loyalties in an exquisitely detailed story of compassion and
strife across an uneasy geopolitical border.
