Every day, Peipei commutes between her home in the Chinese metropolis of Shenzhen and Hong Kong, where she goes to school. She spends most of her time with her childhood best friend Jo, planning the final details of their upcoming trip to Japan during the Christmas holidays. But unlike her wealthy friend, Peipei needs to finance the trip herself, by any means necessary, whether it’s through selling phone cases to classmates or via her part-time restaurant job. She soon finds herself presented with an opportunity which is both more lucrative and dangerous, joining a group of smartphone smugglers, hoping to find the comfort and care amongst them which her own family have failed to provide. Set against a backdrop of national and socio-economic divide, ‘The Crossing’ is an eye-opening coming-of-age story which shines a light on the lives of the young and disenfranchised in contemporary China.
