Stranded in Canton
Like thousands of other African immigrants, Labrun from Congo embarks on an entrepreneurial mission to find work in Chinese Canton. However, things soon get complicated and he becomes stranded in the overpopulated megalopolis. Against the backdrop of the improvised actions of a fictitious protagonist in a real environment, the director provides an insight into the growing relationship between China and Africa.
