Synopsis

“El Hilo Rojo” offers an intimate portrait of the Chinese community residing in Catalonia through the experiences of four Chinese young people of the so-called second generation. The focus of attention is on the notion of cultural identity and, at the same time, on the feeling of community and family; of traditional values facing cultural shock and the re-discovery of oneself.
