"A disenchanted young Buddhist nun confronts ‘real life’ after leaving her monastery, with dramatic results. Artist Xu Bing and his team trawled through 10,000 hours of Cloud-based surveillance to pull together the film, including real footage of car crashes, collapsing buildings, plane crashes and other chaotic, factual moments from life in contemporary China.
