Synopsis:
If someday on a noisy city street or a dusty road of a remote village in China, a battered van wrapped in slogans and red flags bumps into your eyes and high pitched songs of the 1960s explode in your ears, you should not think you are back to the 1960s. It's Liu coming. Liu used to hold a good position in the local government in Tibet. However, he quit his job and left his family twelve years ago. He went on a long, non-stop journey, traveling around China. With a broken van as his only companion, Liu dedicates himself to the great aspiration of establishing a university of international communism on his own. The irony is that the individualistic heroism of his behavior makes him politically provocative in a regime that advocates collectivism. The shooting of the film started in 2007 and has lasted for seven years. The story unfolds as the protagonist's journey goes on, both back to his traumatic past rooted in the Maoist era and forward to the obscure future of capitalist China. To a certain extent, Liu's personal past and present are intimately intermingled with the past and present of this nation; their intersections constantly move forward like the spinning wheels of Liu's van.

在中國的喧囂都市和偏遠鄉村,如果哪天一輛插著紅旗、貼滿標語的破車停在您的面前,並以高分貝播放著紅色歌曲,您可別以為回到了上世紀六十年代——這是“職業雷鋒”老劉來了!老劉原本是西藏的一位公務員,十幾年來,他拋家棄子,開著一輛紅旗飄揚的破車漫遊全國,一路宣傳雷鋒精神,苦心孤詣地要創建共產國際大學。本片從2007年開始製作,前後歷時8年。追隨老劉的旅程,我們的鏡頭不僅伸向了當下中國的神奇現實,同時也不斷重返他曾經置身的歷史境遇,以及無法直面的精神創傷。在某種程度上,他的過去和現在,這個國家的過去和現在,隨著老劉的車輪滾滾向前,在不斷交叉和展現。這是一部由歷史和現實交織的,有關人的命運的悲喜劇。
