Through the story of two families, Plastic China captures the striking, melancholy beauty of a vast and lifeless artificial landscape—a Chinese countryside covered almost entirely in imported plastic. Even within such a profoundly isolating and toxic atmosphere, hope and humanity find their way into the defiantly optimistic 11-year-old Yi-Jie, who dreams of attending school and befriending kids her own age. Preceded by the short: Terra  2084

The World Union is established to take over after the big collapse, but its control gets tighter and tighter, hunting down any deviant elements. Meanwhile, the world plunges into filth as the currency crisis has no end in sight. Will something save this society before it’s too late? Can we as a society let it be saved? Precedes Plastic China
