GAEY WA'R (STREETWISE)

2021, China

Na Jiazuo

Dongzi is in his early twenties and is actually a sensitive guy. To be able to cover the hospital costs for his both heartless and heartsick father, he agrees to throw and get punches and collect money as a debt collector for a local gangster boss. Only Jiu’er, who is much older, shares his melancholic desire for having a goal in life. Much rather than serving as a backdrop, the little Chinese town deserted during the rural exodus in the early 2000s takes on the role of another protagonist.
