Synopsis

Shanghai Story


A failed product copywriter with an alcohol dependency crosses paths with a mysterious stranger on a personal mission and together they embark on an unforgettable adventure across neon-lit Shanghai. During their journey they learn about each other, themselves and discover how to see the city and life with new eyes. A deeply personal story about love, life, loss and the importance of human connection in today’s fast-paced world, Shanghai Story follows two characters who are seemingly different to each other but connect over a personal trauma and find a way to move forward in a far-away land.
