SYNOPSIS

Provincial capital Chengdu today. Factory 420 and its employee housing agglomeration have been demolished to make way for "24 City," a gigantic new luxury apartment complex. Three generations of laid off workers and the local nouveux riche are caught between nostalgia and the desire for success by the young generation.
