In this art film with documentary elements, the artist returns to his hometown in Kuandian county, on the Chinese-North Korean border. The film focuses on Chinese veterans of the Korean War and defectors fleeing from contemporary North Korea. In interviews and filmed scenes, Xiangyu He exposes the cruel geopolitical realities belied by the idyllic landscape, and explores the effects of utopian fantasies on individual destinies. What do the concepts of ‘border’ and ‘home’ mean to these people, and how did they affect their lives? Ultimately, these experiences spur the artist to perform his own transgressive border-crossing act.
