On a lonely Kekexili road, a truck driver picks up a hitchhiker who turns out to be no ordinary wanderer. Somehow, he has the same name as the truck driver (Jinpa), and he is revealed to be on a revenge mission to commit murder. Is this a dream? A karmic manifestation of moral destiny? After dropping the stranger off, the truck driver knows that he can’t simply walk away. Pema Tseden’s Tibetan allegory meets the evocative stylishness of Wong Kar-wai, who boards as the film’s producer.
