"A day-by-day account of globalisation at work" - Filmmaker Magazine
The Chinese march across Africa is halted in the face of local workers on a road-building site in the Congo.
Lao Yan is in charge of a multi-million-pound project in DR Congo to rebuild the road connecting Kolwezi and Lubumbashi, accompanied by his Mandarin-speaking Congolese interpreter Eddy. They face a rocky road of government supply failures, dodgy local company deals and cultural miscommunications at every turn, adding to the tensions in their own prickly relationship.
The result is a harsh but absurdly funny rollercoaster of confrontations and frustration, exposing the condescension of the Chinese masters towards their quietly disdainful Congolese workers.
