A joyful walk through a park.

In an unbroken 75-minute take, the filmmakers take us on a journey through a park in the city of Chengdu in Sichuan province. The camera discloses a rich variety of different activities, generating a sense of the park as a utopian public space while also exploring many aspects of the themes of performance and spectatorship. A uniquely enjoyable film experience.
