Director: Songhuan Li, Yifan Chen
The film is based on a true serial murder case. It details the story of an ordinary citizen who used violence against the vast corruption and injustice of the Chinese education system. At the same time, the film also faithfully reflects the collective subconscious of China’s totalitarian society – power has everything, power dominates everything, and power is everything. Hua Xia, a graduate candidate from rural China, had his postgraduate qualifications transferred by the university president to his son. After a series of inhuman humiliations and conflicts, Hua Xia killed the president and his son with a wrench. To restore their last human rights and dignity. Still, his way of rebelling tells us how irredeemable individual souls can be in a country without faith.
