Synopsis

A rousing dog and man comedy composed of just 61 shots, set in Shenyang in northeastern China, where people argue continuously forever. A graduate student loses his professor’s dog and must enlist his father’s help to retrieve it, lest his prospects of a tutorship vanishes. A biting satire on every conceivable ill in Red China, and an endearing portrait of a father-and-son relationship.
