WHERE IT BEGINS
Director(s): Zaho Fei
Long synopsis : The 90s, a small town high school somewhere in northern China. An athletics competition and a lost Walkman set in motion a chain of events that will mark the lives of two groups of friends, rivals and enemies forever. Wealthy eccentric Qian, rough-edged, thuggish Cheng, troubled and recently impoverished Su, academically gifted and well-connected Wang, privileged and charming athletic Teng Xiao and student president Yang are all linked in a web of friendships and hatreds, secrets, violent conflicts and passionate attachments. None emerges unscarred, and some of the wounds run deep. Years later, a series of encounters draws them back together, but the shadow of the past hangs heavy. Can they redeem themselves – and exorcise the ghosts of their youth – or is tragedy inevitable?
