Part family drama, part absurdist comedy, all-out social satire: the daring feature debut from Cathy Yan (Birds of Prey) weaves together disparate stories of dreamers and oddballs, recalling the very best of Altman. A timely tale of modern-day Shanghai that speaks to the universal dependence on connection.
The fates of an unlucky pig farmer, a feisty home-owner defending her property, a lovestruck busboy, a disenchanted rich girl, and an American expat pursuing the Chinese Dream converge and collide as a large number of dead pigs are located floating down the Huangpu River, towards a modernizing Shanghai.
