A documentary road movie and a humorous story about our perception of the „others“. The film follows a busload of Chinese tourists visiting Europe for the first time – six countries in ten days! This entertaining game of similarities and differences dissolves the boundaries between the two cultures, dealing with one stereotype (the one about Chinese middle class) and revealing a new one (about the Westerners). 

Jill Coulon is a young and self-educated French documentary filmmaker. Her debut film, A Normal Life. Chronicle of a Sumo Wrestler (2009) premiered at IDFA and went on to win several prizes at international festivals. The film was released in French theatres under the title Tu seras sumo in 2013.
