The film is focusing mainly on the person Olivier and his everyday life in Beijing.
The difference between his new environment and his Swiss home will occupy an important position in the film. In front of this dynamic contrast, the film is set in the Chinese capital.
Scenes of Olivier's life in Beijing are supposed to explain him to us as well as to help us understand his motivation to study Beijing opera of all things.
We want to impart the art form 'Beijing opera' to the viewer via Olivier. Olivier gets involved with all his prejudices, fears, and wishes in the life at the Academy and becomes a role model.
In this, we would like to show positive as well as negative facets of the Chinese everyday life in order to eventually understand Olivier's global life concept.
