The leading "clown" role in a renowned theatre troupe passes on, and is welcomed into the Underworld. As he relives his vivid memories one last time before enteringthe afterlife, fifty years of art, struggle and love play out against the background of 20th-century China’s tumultuous history.

Director QIU Jiongjiong (born 1977) is an active contemporary artist and filmmaker in China. As an artist, his works have been exhibited all over the world. As a filmmaker, his experiments with cinematic language and aesthetics in documentary film-making have earned him a reputation as one of China's most important independent directors. A NEW OLD PLAY(2021), his first fiction feature, won Special Jury Prize at Locarno, Firebird Award for Best Film and FIPRESCI Prize at HKIFF and Young Jury Award at Festival des 3 Continents among others.
