We take you on a search for meaning in modern China, guided by the joyful and charismatic main character Zhao Liang, one of the foremost choreographers of modern dance in China today. We follow the evaluation of his new work "Escape from the Temple" with which he hopes for a break through on the international scene. But amidst public ambivalence, artistic feuds, greedy investors and international financial meltdown Zhao faces an uphill struggle to put his new piece on at all. He must also confront the nagging doubt about what he should do with his life, having already turned 36: go on to create or turn inward to the path of the enlightened Zen practitioner? We experience the premiere of the new work, quite an achievement in itself. And Patrick Carr thought it worthwhile to record the dance in full while Zhao remains undecided about his future.
