The first film, Shang fang (Petition : la cour des plaignants), is a documentary on a place in Beijing where people come to wait for their petitions to be heard. Many of the people waiting in this place have been trying for years to right wrongs that have been done in the past. The second film, Zui yu fa (Crime & punishment), is about a city in a northern border town in the Liao Ning Province and the military patrols that supplement the police to keep order in the town. The last films are about a group of drug users and their families, the poor in Beijing. The three short films are about Beijing scenes, an enactment of a young man destroying things in a deserted building and, the last, an experimental film with the film first playing too fast and then too slow.
