Grain in Ear

Grain in Ear follows the plight of Cui (Liu Lianji), a young Korean mother living on the outskirts of Chinese society. With a husband in jail and a son to support, she barely makes a living selling kimchi to workers along the side of a bleak, industrial road. A love affair with a fellow Chinese-Korean leads to tragic consequences as Cui struggles against the vulnerability of her position.

Tang Poetry

Holding a shaking hand with another hand, a former pickpocket confines himself in his apartment. He doesn’t talk to anyone for long. There is only one woman with whom he communicates.
