"Chung Kuo Cina is a film about a China seen but not known, observed, but not explained, and that is its wonderful power and its secret happiness." (Sam Rohdie)

A sci-fi tale that unwinds in the environs of the soul takes the form of a nightmarish quest for nothing less than truth itself. In a plot employing the roughest outlines of a novel by Soviet sci-fi writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, a writer and a scientist follow a shaven-headed stalker into forbidden territory, a dangerous wilderness known as the Zone.
