Dezi is a young restless taxi driver. His work brings him into contact with people whose lifestyles go far beyond his intellectual horizon, which is not true of his female acquaintances. The film follows him on his tours throughout Beijing. He is always on the move, people and places come into his life and leave it again. Dezi's journeys from one place to another or from one woman to another resemble Beijing's search for its own identity, which is somewhere between the old values and an unknown future. Ning Ying's new film effortlessly mixes the familiar and the unknown.
