UK & Ireland Premiere

The first post-pandemic film in which successful director Da Peng turns the lens on himself and his family in the Northeast China during Chinese New Year, as the pandemic is unfolding on the country.

Comedy film director Dong Chengpeng went back to his rural hometown, Tonghua, Jilin Province, on a whim, hoping to make an art-house film about how his family celebrated the Chinese New Year. However, during the shooting of the film, the original main subject of the film – his grandmother, passed away due to illness, Dong Chengpeng had to change the original shooting plan. And the members of the big family in Northeast China who got together because of the film, also ushered in the outbreak of a conflict on the first night of the New Year’s Eve after the loss of the old lady. In the end, completed their last reunion party.
