Synopsis

Winner of the 2012 Lux Prize, Andrea Segre's intimate drama tells the story of Shun Li, a Chinese immigrant forced to move from Rome in order to work in a bar on a small island in the Veneto lagoon. Though lonely at first, she meets Bepi, a Slavic fisherman, nicknamed the Poet, who befriends her. However, the locals are not so happy about this. Tao Zhao and Rade Serbedzija are impressive as the oddly matched pairing in this evocative, profoundly humane and sympathetic drama that marks Segre as an exciting new voice in contemporary cinema.
