China's cities are booming and there is only one word to describe the present social situation, disorder. This film integrates more than 20 unique urban events, such as a man who hasn't received indemnity threatening suicide, a lunatic joyfully dancing in the middle of traffic, pigs running wildly on a highway, pedestrians risking their lives to cross a busy street, a conflict over counterfeit money, the discovery of a cultural relic on a construction site, and a polluted river where official representatives swim, a determined laborer fishes, and an escaped alligator hides.
