The Blinding Sun

Director's Words
The movie tells us the real lives of those people who live in the southern part of Beijing. Lee and his family have to maintain their lives helplessly and forcefully. The movie reveals the incomplete Chinese educational system and China's social insurance. Lee is only a nobody, this movie draws the outline of the real lives by charactering the nonentities. These nonentities all live their lives hard and reluctantly, the same as others, but they have different feelings and life experiences even under the same sunshine. The sunshine is warm, but blinding, and the loneliness in their deep hearts is perpetual.
