  • Introduction
China, one of the world’s fastest-growing countries, has a population of 1.4 billion people. Over 300 million are considered as a floating population, meaning that they are aliens within their own nation. 150 million of them are white-collar workers who are forced to leave their hometowns to work in big cities. In such a rapid and developing society, it is more than common that people loose themselves, feeling deep inside unhappy and experiencing a terrible lack of safety. This film is based on a true story about a white-collar Chinese worker that lives in Beijing. After he reads the fantasy novel “Lost horizon”, he begins an extraordinary journey with a backpack to find his “Shangri-La”. His quest to find it was so intense that he crossed 6 provinces and 12 cities, passing by the Shangri-La and the Tibet region. On his way, he meets and talks with many travelers such as a Tibetan Thangka master, a Wudang Kong Fu master, a hundred years old Daoist priest and a philosophy professor. Once he understands their advices, he follows his own feelings to realize that he was guided to a mysterious place.
