Q&A with director Cai Shangjun

On the frigid Sino-Russian border, where fortunes are made overnight, unemployed middle-aged police informant Bo (Huang Bo) stumbles across a gun, and decides to try for a big break of his own as a stickup man. Shortly after he goes on the lam in eastern Russia, where a one-night stand turns into something more complicated, and Bo discovers the possibility of something to live for even as his time may be running out. A breakout role for pop singer Bo, awarded at the Shanghai International Film Festival.
