China, China

Synopsis

China walks towards the Martim Moniz district, in Lisbon. When she passes the children scream: "China, China!". China is going to fly. To escape far away at dawn. She just wants to be happy. But China driinks her own poison. She drinks it all. Sometimes the air seems loaded with evil and the purgatory is a kindergarden.
