Synopsis

Having spent much of his life in the Chinese countryside, Guei finally makes it to the big city of Beijing. At first, he's awestruck and amazed by the hectic scenes around him, but the harsh reality of urban life soon hits home when his work bicycle is stolen.

The stage is then set for the pair to battle over ownership of the Bejing Bicycle...
