Yana is a twenty-four-year-old rural migrant recently arrived in Chongqing to pursue her dreams.

Drawn by the glamour and easy riches of China’s real estate boom, she opens a “foreigner rental agency” designed to help Chinese real estate developers market their new developments. But the business takes a dubious turn as her clients are increasingly used in a surreal effort to turn remote rural ghost towns into “globalized booming cities” on days when outside investors and political leaders visit. This incisive new film dissects the reckless, mind-boggling globalized real estate market. (2016, 73 min, digital)
