Pan wins the case through sophisticated reasoning, forces the poacher to give him his car as a reward and begins to drive home. But unbeknownst to Pan, the car is carrying stolen falcons and before long he runs into a series of unlucky accidents and meets some unsavory characters. After he loses his glasses and accidentally hits another poacher (Huang Bo of Lost in Thailand), Pan is consumed by fear and guilt, and embarks on a real and metaphorical journey back to civilization.

No Man’s Land Movie Trailer 2013

In a courtroom in northwest desert, a young attorney, Xiao Pan and his silver tongue successfully eliminate the Big Boss as a murder suspect. A red sedan speeds along the straight highway, which goes across the Gobi Desert, a 500-mile remote area known as “No Man’s Land”. It is Xiao Pan who just won the case and smugly drives his new red sedan, which was not willingly given by Big Boss as Xiao’s attorney fees. He enjoys the magnificent scenery along the way while the car runs in the wild west. Big Boss’ minion is already waiting to rob Xiao on the road ahead, while Xiao is speeding up on the road and has no idea he’s getting close to danger.
