In the Chinese city of Chongqing, only one old neighborhood, Shibati, has survived the government’s drive to demolish and rebuild. But not for long: here too, the narrow alleyways are being replaced by vast shopping centers. To document what will soon have disappeared for good, filmmaker Hendrick Dusollier spends several months in the neighborhood. The filmmaker befriends the young Zhou Hong and the extraordinary Mrs Xue Lian, last witnesses of a world abut to disappear.
