In the film, a young American man and a Chinese girl casually pass time in each other’s company near a construction site in a suburb of Shanghai. They are citizens of the two most powerful countries in the world but couldn’t be more shy, happy to co-exist but a meaningful relationship is beyond them because they do not share a language. He leaves after a while; she stays. A slow psychological drama, it can be easily read as a geopolitical vignette.
