A teenage girl who aspires to a better lifestyle turns to smuggling to raise cash in Bai Xue’s striking debut feature. Sixteen-year-old Peipei has the means and the wherewithal to get involved in the smuggling game between the Chinese and Hong Kong borders - she crosses it twice a day on her way to and from school. But her move into deeper illegality brings challenges and dangers she never could have anticipated.
An energetic coming of age film, which is also a stylish exercise in style and political allegory.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
