Summer Place (Yihe yuan)

Rated NR 104 minutes 2008

Country girl Yu Hong leaves her village to study in Beijing. At university, she falls madly in love with fellow student Zho Wei. Driven by passion that neither can control, their relationship becomes one of dangerous games. All around them, their fellow students begin to demonstrate, demanding democracy and freedom. As the protests collapse, Yu and Zhou lose each other amidst the social chaos and panicked crowds. Zhou Wei is sent to a military camp and, on his release, moves to Berlin. Meantime, Yu finds a job and a lover, but cannot forget Zhou. In Germany too, social unrest is mounting-a familiar story for Zhou. Still haunted by Yu, he returns to China as the Berlin Wall crashes down. He finally finds her, in a small town. From evening to dawn, their future stretches before them, two changed souls in a changed world.
