    Quianmen is a popular neighborhood in the very heart of Beijing just south of Tiananmen Square. In the perspective of the 2008 Olympic games, the city has decided to “rehabilitate” the 500 years old labyrinth of small streets where more than 80 000 people live. The film follows the long transformation process, from one reality to another. Sequence after sequence, like pieces of a puzzle, appears the portrait of a neighborhood, a story of China nowadays.
