Lan Yu (Ye) is a young architecture student, newly arrived in Beijing in 1988.

When Lan Yu participates in the demonstrations at Tiananmen Square, Hangdong goes looking for him and the two resume their affair, which continues to be rocky. Based on the anonymous novel "Beijing Story," published only on the Internet in 1997 in order to avoid Chinese censorship. Chinese with subtitles.
