In southern China during spring 1976, a young widow and her son live a happy life in a small remote village. The mother starts to behave in a strange way after losing a pair of embroidered bootees. In eastern China during summer 1976, teachers Liang and Tang are good friends. Sudden events change the apparent calm prevailing on the university campus. In southern China during autumn 1976, Tang sent to a village for rehabilitation finds his wife with Tang, the son of the widow. In western China during winter 1958, two figures riding white camels appear in the Gobi desert. One of them must find her fiancé and the other one who is pregnant must collect her dead husband’s belongings.
“The Sun Also Rises” is a succession of surrealistic tales in four tableaux, as well as an invitation to travel through time and China, and a symphony of colors, textures and sounds.
