Film Presentation:
Spatiul urban românesc, marcat de varii influente culturale, fie ele occidentale, fie orientale, a fost, începând cu anii '90, locul în care foarte multi imigranti chinezi si-au gasit rostul. Evitând problemele generale pe care toti strainii le au, filmul urmareste discret si profund trei istorii ale unor chinezi aflati în confruntarea zilnica cu concurenta comerciala, cu nedreptatea si ilegalitatile sau cu dezacordurile religioase. Toate drumurile celor trei duc, într-un fel sau altul, la centrul comercial Europa, epicentrul vietii sociale, nu lipsite de singuratate sau pericole.
