FAREWELL YELLOW SEA
Chinese nurse Qing never left her homeland so far. When arriving as a trainee in geriatric care in the Black Forest two worlds clash. While she is wondering at strange German habits, her employer expects her to bite through any homesickness. But to some elderly Qing is a bright spot in daily routine. Mainly to Mrs Wohlfahrt who is attributing her intelligence to the consumption of fish eyes and to 100-year-old Mr Reiner who becomes a mentor to her. Starting in China FAREWELL YELLOW SEA follows Qing for 3 years on her ‘Revolutionary Road’. A film about taking wings and wandering between worlds. Sometimes quirky, sometimes sad and heartwarming.
