Mandarin and Hunan dialect with Chinese and English subtitles, 145 min.
The little-known county of Suining in Hunan province is an ordinary yet magical place. As the planned landing site for the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, the area has experienced many instances of falling rocket debris since the 1990s. These mysterious and dangerous “visitors from the heavens” have disrupted the lives of its 160,000 residents. 2008 was both the year China hosted the Olympics and its “year of aerospace.” Beneath the veneer of these national celebrations, the residents of Suining were forced once again to face their peculiar fate of debris falling from the sky.
