Facing The Sun
Amongst Beijing’s vast sprawl, a discontented urbanite attempts to reconnect with his estranged father. With no real family, distant friends and tormented by unrequited affection, Sheng’s 22nd birthday prompts him to reach out to his father. After leaving multiple voice messages, he is finally faced with the truth he had wanted so badly, yet now seems so hard to swallow.
Facing the Sun is a story of abandonment, alienation and discontent in an ever-changing city.
