In Quanzhou, a historic city where diverse faiths live in harmony, a pious old woman wavers three times in her faith in gods. When faiths clash, a dramatic play lies in store.

Director's Note

The film employs a God’s eye view to present the story of “men seeing gods.” “Circle” in Chinese culture represents completeness, and the full-circle composition in the film intends to tell an incomplete story with a complete composition. Minnan (Southern Fujian to the South of China) is a unique existence in Chinese culture. Its local culture is very close to traditional culture, but also known for its mostly diverse faiths, and thus inspired this thought-provoking satire. I hope to dig deep into the roots of Minnan and Chinese cultures and tell stories saturated with the East spirit.
