A musical road movie set in the grand opera houses of the West and China. A personal and cultural journey demonstrates the universal power of music to connect two ancient civilizations separated by great distances, just as the Silk Road once did.
The film recounts the sacrifices that the soprano Hui He had to make to achieve and maintain professional excellence. This is not a biopic about a great opera singer, it is rather a creative documentary that puts together a mosaic of some of the elements of Hui’s story, at the same time deepening our understanding of the relationship between China and the West.
