Director 导演 : 王一骜 WANG Yiao Screenplay 编剧 : 王一骜 WANG Yiao
An ambitious debut from WANG Yiao, GREAT HAPPINESS tells the story of three good friends, who grew up together and have their own visions of a bright future. Belonging to the one-child generation, these young people are confronted with triple challenges: the frustrations of fulfilling personal goals, the burden of rearing a large family and the overpowering social expectation.
By making the ubiquitous and homogenous high-rise buildings the backdrop of GREAT HAPPINESS, WANG creates an indelible picture of Chinese young men grappling with the fundamental questions of existences in the modern city and high-speed developing country.
