An Elephant Sitting Still (2018) - full transcript

In the northern Chinese city of Manzhouli, they say there is an elephant that simply sits and ignores the world. Manzhouli becomes an obsession for the protagonists of this film, a ...

He told me the other day

There is an elephant in Manzhouli

It sits there all day long

Perhaps some people keep stabbing it with forks

Or maybe it just enjoys sitting there

I don't know

People gather there, watching it sitting still

They feed the elephant food

but it takes no notice

He told me that before

What did he say?

You are stepping on my pants

What did he say?

Same thing

Give me some water

What's the smell?

Who opened the freaking window?

I'm closing it now

It's too late! Now the apartment is stinky!

A lousy day starts again!

It's the kitchen window


The smell comes in through the kitchen window

No one cleans the garbage down there

It's much better than your bedroom!

The dumpster smells better than your nasty room!

Where's my gift card?

No idea

You used it the other day. Where is it now?

Check the cupboard

It's not there

Well, I don't know

He stole it

I didn't

You gave a 20% off to customers at the supermarket

You then spent the kickback at Internet cafés!

I did not

What else can you do? You little piece of crap

No one wants the same lecture every morning

Am I wrong?

Go to your Grandma's. You're gross

I'd have gone there already if there's heat in her place

We don't have heat either!

You are stinking this place out!

Get out

Carry the bag

I'm off.

You're not allowed to burn it here

Then where?

I don't care. Not in this neighborhood!

But these are from the neighborhood

You deaf?

You can't burn it here!

Burn it right here!

Who do you think you are?

Burn it right here!

Come down here You piece of crap!

I'm your Daddy

Get down here!

Get lost

Till tonight

No way


I'm leaving for work

Sometimes when you smoke

your skin peels off

and blood will remain on the cigarette

You see?


You didn't give me the water I asked

I have to leave

Suit yourself

You used the gift card for cigarettes

I didn't

What did you buy then?

It's not even yours. You picked it up on the street

School district housing

is triple the price of normal housing

Of course it's not necessary

But our daughter will go to a less qualified school

She might be bullied

I can't watch my kid going to the terrible
high school where I'm working

So school district housing
is the only option for a better education

Your feet

But our money can only afford
a small school district apartment

Keep it tight

We can't all move in

There's not enough space

That's why we want to send you to a nursing home

You always think

we want to abandon you that way

Your instep

Why do I have to stretch in the morning?

Frequent training makes you a good dancer

They say I'm good enough

You can do better

What for?

Straighten up your back

The school forbids us to tutor students outside

My own student told on me once

Private schools don't have these restrictions

But it offers no welfare guarantee either

It's not an iron bowl in the long run

Hold on

It's possible to transfer

to a branch school

but takes a lot of effort

Our school acquired a private school

and founded this so-called branch school

The pay is good

but it sounds less decent

I'm still thinking about it





Good, go on

I can't keep my dog at nursing homes

I can't go there

OK, I understand

Let Grandpa help me with the stretching. He's good at it


Dad, please be more considerate

She doesn't even have a place to do her homework

She can't always write on your sewing machine

This is my apartment

Dad, please stop

We didn't mean it that way

This is not the first time you brought it up

We are not forcing you

I saw your mother

What happened?

He slashed my bicycle tires

Why did you bring it here?

My Dad will beat me up if he knows it

What's your plan?

I don't know

Let's see what he's up to

Buy him a new phone?

Why should I? I didn't take it

The whole mess will be over

I'm not afraid of him

I'm equipped

Good for you

I took my Dad's gun

from his curio collection

He thought I didn't know

I found it a couple of years ago

What are you going to do with it?

Wanna try?

You got anything?

What's that? Fried churrio?

My Dad used to interrogate people with this

It leaves no marks

Your bike

Who's that?

It's me

I forgot my shoes

They are in the cabinet

Somebody else is home?


Why are you back?

I'm picking up my stuff

Are you leaving?


Or are you staying home?

Those are your shoes?


The water is leaking in the toilet!

The toilet is leaking!


The toilet is leaking again. It's all flooded

You did it?

It's the third time

Call someone to fix it

or use a basin, OK?

Your cake is there

You stepped on it?


I bought it for you and you crushed it?

No, I didn't

I walked two freaking miles

There was no 24-hour bakery store around

I told you I didn't step on it!

Where's my contract?

Find it and read for me

You hear me?

He wanted to beat up Yu Shuai

But ended up kneeling down by the river,
singing a lullaby

How did you know?

I was on the other side

Keep rolling

Do you have it on you?

I didn't take it


but you stole it

No, I did nothing

Everyone else's stuff was right over there

Why were you there? You don't play basketball

You thought you could fool me?

I didn't steal it. I have my own phone

What did you see?

Stay the hell out of it

He's useless

Why not call you Grandpa. He practices Tai-chi right?

P...Piss off

I'll come back during the break

Meet me at the stairs

Don't let me come to you

Let's go

I will pay for the broken desk

You were right. I shouldn't have messed with him

I should've bought him a new one

Here's the money for the desk

Our school is going to be demolished


This is the worst school in town

They are building up a new neighborhood

Our school is merging with another one

This stupid building will be gone

What about us?


You go wherever you're supposed to go

And you?


I'll have a new office in the new school.

Larger, more comfortable

You guys will go to the worst high school in the city

When you graduate, most of you
will become street food vendors

Keep the money

Have some fun at the Internet café

Why are you so positive about your future?

Tell that mopping boy to come in

Vice dean asked for you

The world is a wasteland


A quote from this book. I'm moved

You are... moved?

Did you pay for the desk?

For History class?


Why don't you go inside?

Wanna stand for a while

Do you want to meet me later this afternoon?


Monkey park

I can't. I have other things

What things?

You don't have anything to do?
Why always go there?

I've got my own business as well

Like what?

Feeding monkeys?


You shouldn't have messed with Yu Shuai

He has a brother. Everyone knows that

His brother can kill you

That'd be perfect

What do you want?

I've seen worse.
They didn't force you out of your home yet

I know the place

I know the place

Tolerable food, TV sets

But you have to smoke secretly

My old badminton fellow is there

Why ask? You're bored at home?

I thought your granddaughter is close to you


Have you seen a big white dog?

It's white, huge, like this big,
and long hair. Have you seen it?


I saw it

Running north

North where?

Towards that bridge

Are you able to look after the kid?

They won't allow me

My hands tremor sometimes

Then you are useless to them

I bet you have to leave anyways

They won't even pay for your residential fees
if they're not happy

The police came

You know what

it wasn't because of me

He bought this apartment

because you made him do it

He had a lousy pay

What else can he do with that pay?
So he jumped off the building

I don't care what you think

It was his own decision. I'm not guilty

He was paying for your vanity

You're the one who should've jumped off

I can't believe I'm talking to you about this

Did anyone ask about it?

They'd better not ask

Or I'll tell them it was you that pushed him off

Why do you look so sad?

Because he's dead?

Because I'm heartless?

Or all the problems coming up?

They called his Mom

She has booked a flight

She will come to you

You were his only friend


You gave him the money?

He didn't take it

He said our school is closing

How come?

He said we're going to be street food vendors

No. He lied to you

I know

But I think it makes sense

What were you doing with Huang Ling?

She said Yu Shuai's brother could kill us

You have the balls to come with him?

Tell me your thoughts

He didn't steal it

You were not there

But I know he's not a thief

But my phone is missing

Maybe someone else took it

Maybe your Dad took it

What did he take from my family that got him fired?

Did he bribe you? So you stand up for him?

Be careful. The school might kick you out as well

So you can stay home with Daddy

Fine. I'll buy you a new phone

Buy your ass!

What about my old files?

Let him buy one. Give him an out

Shut up. They asked for it

We did nothing

How do you want to end this?

You two sing a lullaby on your knees

Buy me a new phone later

No way

You think you're the boss?


Then stay out of his business

You are nothing

What are you?

You stupid jackass

Your mother sells clothes in the mining area.
Everybody knows that

Did I tell you to leave?

You wanna fight with that damn stick?

You wanna get yourself killed?


Who's this?

It's me

You changed your number?


No. I'll be gone for a while. You know, some stuff


What're you doing today?

I have a busy schedule

Fine. Just grab a bite

What's that?

I have a call

I can't

I have a business dinner

Send me the address. I can wait

You're annoying

You're right. Life is annoying

What now?

Someone beat up Yu Shuai at school

So? You want me to fight back?

Why are you so shameless?


Have you no shame?!

Don't go over there! OJ! Come!

Go away

Go away

Have you seen a big white dog?

Like this

Hey, I'm talking to you

Did you hear me?

Watch your ass!

You shitty punk!

I forgot my homework

Where's my money?

I put it under the mattress

I don't know

It was there this morning

That's not your money

It's my money

No, it's not. Have you earned a single penny?

That's the lucky money from Grandma


Where are you going?

(Missing Dog)

Where do they live?

That's enough. Go back inside

Go back inside

No one calls the fucking cops!

Now tell me about it

It was scary

They didn't even wipe off the blood

They shared the picture in a group chat

What should we do?

Why're you crying?

I don't know what to do

It's none of your business

Time for class

Go back to your seats

You know what happened?

Not the fighting part

You two are close?

Just fine

Why did Wei Bu beat up Yu Shuai?

Yu Shuai believed that Li Kai had stolen his phone

Wei Bu tried to help him out

Can't be that simple

That's all

You're asking as if you care

Because it would get me involved

The boss would ask me about it

In the end it's always my business

Students' problems are my problems

If you stay out of it, nothing will change

I know

But I'll get into trouble

Things work like that

If anything happens, everyone gets into trouble

But we keep running into troubles

We have to close down the school early today

Last night my Mom...

Mr. Li

I want Wei Bu's address and phone number

(Great Circus in Manzhouli)





I'm cooking

Where's your Mom?

Grandma passed away

Oh, I didn't know

Now you know

What do you mean?


You only visit her when you need money

It's your nephew

Go and check on your Mom

You're not going anywhere

Call his father

Don't leave

Who's that?

It's me

Who are you looking for?

You have a big white dog?

Where is it?

It bit my dog

He saw Pipi?

He said Pipi bit his dog

But where is Pipi?

It killed my dog

I'm asking about Pipi

Is this your dog?

Turn off the gas first

Ask him about Pipi!

Do you have any proof that my dog killed yours?

Pipi doesn't bite other dogs

Shut up

There was a huge white dog running in the streets

But it doesn't have to be my dog

I have a witness


An old lady. She once saw your wife walking that dog

I have to find it first

And confirm what you said

I went to the vet's

My dog is dead

How much do you want?

I'm not going to pay the vet's bills

I'm coming to tell you that your dog killed mine

What do you want?

How much money do you want?

How much is it worth?

Your dog must have bitten mine, right?

Did I ask you for any money?

You wanna blackmail me, isn't it?

What are you up to?


I crashed into a car a few days ago and got out

That driver didn't get a single penny from me

You think you can rip me off now?

My cue is here

My cue is here

This one?

No, the Aomi one

Can't tell

This one?

It's carved with words

Can I exchange it for some cash?

You can ask the owner. This one is worth 800 Yuan

I only want 500

I'll get it back as soon as I have money

I can't do that. The owner is not here

400 Yuan will also do

Come on. I don't have a say

- I saw a boy at the counter
- Shut up

Hello, auntie

I heard about it

You should've told me to pick you up at the airport

I'll meet you at the police station

I'm coming

There was a boy coming for his cue

He might be the one you're looking for

Where's the kid?

Let's go to the monkey park

An ambulance was at the school today?


What happened?

No idea

No idea?

A student called Wei Bu hit Yu Weipeng's son

The kid is in the hospital now

That Wei Bu got himself into huge trouble

What are you so happy about?

I'm not

Don't use my foundation

I didn't

Makeup is for grown-ups, not for you kids

I did not

I know you have

Don't get yourself pregnant

I'm giving you a warning

I have a colleague

who didn't warn her kid in advance

Then they were in big trouble

You make me sick

Stop pretending

Does shaming me make you happy?

Stop right here

I saw it


How did it die?

A dog bit it

Somebody else's dog?


What happened?

Why ask?

I need some money

You want money from me?

It's borrowing. I will return it

Why not ask your parents?

I got into some trouble. I can't call them now

But I don't have any money

I sleep on the balcony. I can't offer you anything

I know. I just want to borrow some

Take a look at this cue

It cost me over 1,000

You can ask around in any pool room

You can keep it as a guaranty

What do I need this for?

This is the best thing I have

I'll buy it back

I told you I don't have money.
I don't have my pensions

You have the wrong person

I do understand

Try someone else

Take a look at this

Just leave


Where's my dog? Did you kill it?

His dog did it?

Let's go to the police!
Or I'll come down to get you!

What are you up to?

What are you up to?

I can scratch your car all over

and not give you a damn penny for it

Come if you dare

Come on

I won't stop you!

Do it!

Come on. Do it!

Do it!

Stop. I didn't hurt your dog

A truck will kill you both!

I have to go

I don't need it

Take it

You can sell it for some cash

I can't carry it with me

Do you know Manzhouli?


I'm going there

There's an elephant sitting there

Why does it matter to you?

It doesn't

I want to go and see for myself

I'll go with you

Don't bother

I didn't tell them you were here

You're clean

You don't have to worry

How's that?

I heard about this two hours ago

I could've picked you up at the airport

I want a cigarette

Have a new one

It's so tall

Aren't you cold?

Was it because Li Kai stole the phone?

He didn't steal it

How do you know?

I just know it

What's your plan?

I'm going to buy a ticket

To where?


Go back. It's not that serious

You don't get it

What do you want me to do?

You want to join me?

Give me a break

My Mom just asked me about you

I don't know where she got the news

What will you do in Manzhouli?

There will be something

Look around. Everyone's alive

It's dangerous for me to come here

I'll be done if they know it

No one will know

Why did you hit him?

I didn't know it until today

that my dad was fired because he took bribes

What's that got to do with your fight?

I hit him when I heard it

It's just natural

I didn't feel anything

I don't care whether Li Kai
stole the phone or not

I'm his friend

I did what I have to do

I've no idea why it ended up like this


I didn't beat him. He fell down the staircase

Then why did you escape?

Are you going to Manzhouli with me?

I can do part-time

I've worked every summer vacation.
All kinds of work

You can come back if you want

Let's see what you're capable of

You can play shuttlecock

Yes, I can do that

So you can perform shuttlecock-kicking
in Manzhouli

People will give you money for that

You can settle there then

Are you making fun of me?

No, just stating the fact

That is sarcasm

You were right though

I can only play shuttlecocks

You've won prizes for that


Meaning you're really good

Not at all

Everyone can waste their time on any meaningless shit

It even makes you look like a freaking pro

So why shuttlecock?

Because other things make me feel even worse

You're leaving?


What happened?


I just can't go with you. It's not good


You don't have to run away

Just leave

You play pool?

Entry level

That asshole

Cut the bullshit!

Smash it!

This is the cue


He showed it off in the pool room

Who knows where he's stolen the money for this

Is this yours?


Wanna play with me?

Not today

When are you free?

Dad, what's going on?

Get out!

You deaf?

Is that you, Grandpa?

There's a name on it

Let's save some time

Where did you get this?

What are you going to do when you find him?

He beat up a piece of trash

and that piece of trash is my brother

What do you think I should do?

A piece of trash brother?

That's right

A piece of trash


I'm going to the train station

Keep an eye on him. Don't let him go

Watch this

Let him take a look

Hey old man, watch this

Grandpa are you there?

Cut the crap!

Don't mess with us

Piss off

Where's the puppy?

Come back home Grandpa!

Come here

He wants a copy for himself

You two, come to the train station

I have something else to do

That's the dean from my brother's school

What's your brother's name?

Yu Shuai. You know him?

Heard of him

That's your girlfriend inside?

No. I don't have other things to do

You have to be careful

About what?

Don't be good-for-nothing when you're at my age

What's the difference if you're of any use?

You should go inside and punch that dean

He is the vice dean

You'd go inside if he were the dean?

There's no difference. I wouldn't dare

You should let her know that you came by, and you saw it

Why's that?

Or you will be just like this freaking trash can

(You're screwed)

What's going on?

Group chat. They have nothing better to do

The school didn't call the police. Why?

The fight?

Better settle it privately

Yu's family has a car dealership

Settling it privately is the best way out,
for Wei Bu or for the school

His brother is looking for Wei Bu

That's fine

Wei Bu hit him

He has to pay for that

Nothing serious

What do people make of things happening to them?

What do you mean?

I don't think Wei Bu knew what he was doing

He surely didn't

When I was at school, there was a guy in class

One day, I saw him with a stray cat at the riverside

He found some stones

And he slowly smashed the cat to death

And then?

He was often bullied back then

His grades sucked as well

Teachers said that he had no future

But these had nothing to do with him killing the cat

He was just happy doing it

And you were watching as he did it?


I wanted to stop him.
That was the right thing to do

But if I did

I would have something to do with it

So I just watched

I have to admit that I enjoyed watching the whole thing

Why are you telling me this?

I want you to know

Daily routines have always been the same
across different ages

You don't have to be confused

People will get it over time

Can I get myself?

Life just won't get better

It's all about agony

That agony has begun since you were born

You think that a new place will change your fate?

It's bullshit

New place, new sufferings

You understand?

No one truly knows about existence

Where should I go if school is closed?

Find another one

You're not divorced

I saw you pick up your kid

We're separated

Easy. I was kidding

What are you worried about?


I'm quite at ease at the moment

It's been there for a while

Where's the puppy, Grandpa?

It's dead, right?

Is the puppy dead?

It's an old dog

I can take her to school

Dad, don't be too sad

It's no easy thing keeping a pet

Even harder if it gets sick

The vets are really expensive

What have you got yourself into?

It's OK. I can handle it

It's not that bad

You can go to the nursing home now

I just called them

An army commander lives there

You two will get along well

No rush

Just think about it

Let's have dinner

I ate already

It's a nice cue. Where did you get it?

Come down here you old piece of crap!

Get your butt down here!

Shall we call the police?


Thank you both

Thank you for taking care of this


What's wrong?


Why're you looking at me?

Then where should I look?

Who knows. I don't like people staring at me

Come on

I'll grab a bite

You just left a restaurant

I didn't eat much

What are you doing here?

Hanging out with you

You just came?

I feel relaxed with you

It's not going to work out between us

We're not the same kind of people

It'll get us nowhere no matter how many times you try

Then who is your kind?

Not you at least

We don't understand each other

Awesome, that sounds really complicated

Here it is, again

Your attitude is so annoying

You make me feel uncomfortable

I slept with my friend's wife this morning

He found out and jumped off the building

I have to stay away for a while

Why are you doing this?

Because you refused to see me

I won't change my mind

I'm telling you because it's all your fault

It's because of you that he's dead

What's the matter with you?


Get out


Get the hell out!

Don't move!

Don't freaking move!

A professor boards a fishing boat

He asks the fisherman if he understands poetry

The fisherman says no

The professor says "your life is reduced to half"

Then he asks if the fisherman understands music

He says no again

The professor says "then the other half of your life is gone"

The fisherman asks if the professor knows how to swim

The professor says he can't

"then your whole life is gone"

And the professor is thrown into the water


Have you checked our group chat?

Hurry up

The message that just came in

It was already in other group chats yesterday

What happened?

Who filmed this?

I don't know

I'm ruined


That guy at the restaurant with the note...

was stalking us?

These clips began to spread yesterday

Why are people so freaking nosy?

Why are people so evil?

And they're so young!

Somebody will come get you
when you're minding your own business

Why are you cursing?

Just go

You ruined me.
I can't transfer to the new school now

Take your things

Why did you go back?

How the hell should I know

Don't talk to me like that

Fine. I don't care about anyone, OK?

I don't know if my brother is dead or not

Either I'm going to find that little brat

or I'm going to see my brother at the hospital

Then why are you here?

Didn't I tell you? I have to go away for a while

I'm leaving tonight

You'd better go now

Where were we?


You said your friend died because of me


Tell me about it

About what?

He killed himself because of me

I don't see any connections

You rejected me

So I went to his place and slept with his wife

Then he jumped off the building

So I can't say no to you?

You believe you're somebody, don't you?

You started all this mess

You're playing innocent or what?

My life is like a dumpster

Garbage keeps piling up

They come one after another.
You can never clean it up

Everybody is the same

You think you're the only one that can't take it?

You're always very blunt when it comes to me

Because you won't let me go

It wasn't like this from the beginning

That's right

But it didn't last long

I started to feel uncomfortable

Yes, you told me that

That's right

No one ever feels comfortable

It's only you

Do you feel comfortable?

Why do you ask?

You are faking it

The way you are

You make that up

Actually you're no different than any other women

You're so dark

All the same

Who gives you the right to say that?

I'm watching you, everyday

See how you present yourself

Skiing, scuba diving... all that middle-class stuff

Look around

What's the point of faking a middle-class life?

You don't have to sound bitter
because I don't want to sleep with you

Yeah, probably

I'm going to Manzhouli to check out something.

Wanna come with me?

Not interested

You don't wanna know what I want to see there?

I'm going to tell you anyway

The funniest thing I've ever heard

There's this elephant in a zoo

It just sits there all day long

What's fun about that?

The suicide guy told me one week ago

You're not interested?

I'm not going anywhere with you

Why are you standing here?

I can leave

Be my guest. I'm going to the hospital

to check out a dumbass, his crazy mother

and an old wretch

You're not leaving with me?


I don't want to leave you alone

Cut the crap

Who is it?

You need to do me a favor

Where are you? We were looking for you.

The shopping mall near the hospital

Did you see him?

Take you hands off me

Don't stumble over

At the entrance

We're supposed to meet up here.
But he didn't tell me when

Where's he now?

I'll look over there

I can't find him

Let's go upstairs

Let's go upstairs

Let's check on different spots

Wei Bu! Where were you?

Wei Bu! Take your hands off me!

Let me go! Wei Bu!

You freaking sold me out!

I only told your parents. They could help you out

They're the only ones you can go to

Did I say not to tell anybody?

Did I or didn't I?

You piece of crap!

Yes, that's right

What's right?

The way you are

I tried to help you out, but you don't give a damn

No one gives a damn about me

What do you mean?

I am nothing!

What was your plan then?

Send my Dad to take me away?

Keep me safe in prison?

Yu Cheng went to your place and smashed a lot of stuff

They're worried

They can't help

You were wrong the whole time

I stole that cellphone

He shot a lot of videos on his phone

He recorded me taking a piss

You said you hadn't stolen the phone

Because I lied to you

I'd rather buy him a new one than let him keep the video

You worthless punk

I'm probably the last person to see who you are

There're other videos on his phone

Like Huang Ling with the vice dean at a karaoke bar

You shouldn't have beaten him up

He's a coward. A little scare will do

Now it's all screwed up

You're saying I screwed this up?

Yes you did

I've told you this

I'm not scared of anything

I can do anything

I'll do fine without you

Where the hell can you go?

You will freaking rot in here

(Nursing Home - Visiting Hours)

I want to take a look

(Great Circus in Manzhouli)

(Sitting Elephant)

There's a Yu Shuai here...

how's he doing?

There's a Yu...

(Surgical Department Zone 1)

Shut up

What have you done?

Don't yell at me

Look at him! He's lying there!

Why not call the police?

Arrest that asshole!

I've looked for him all day. I'm not stupid

Once you beat him almost deaf!

You and your gang abused him!

Oh crap, not again!

Get out!

Hey kiddo. Throw that shuttlecock over!

Come on!

Hey! You prick!

Screw you

What did you say? Say it again?

I said screw you! You hear that?

Come over here!

You'll be dead! I'll kill you!

Wait right there, you little brat!

Come over and I'll kill you!

Stop. That's enough

Let go!

I'll kill you!

Stay right there!

Try me!

Damn you! You piece of trash!

Stay right there if you dare.

Stay right there!

Come back!

It's not worth it

You're a scumbag!

You're the most disgusting thing I've ever seen!

Damn you!

Go to hell!



Where to?


I have tickets to Manzhouli

I can line up here

A couple of tour groups were here earlier.

You won't get a ticket in two hours

You're home

That deputy chief tried to touch me over dinner

He ain't nothing

He pretended to be drunk

What good could he do for me?

That bald good-for-nothing

I want to tell you something

He was talking big

Says he wanted to buy all the medicine I'm selling

What for?

I can sell it to anybody

I want to tell you something

Where did you come back from?

The vice dean at the school has been very nice to me

Really nice

I feel much more comfortable with him than at home

Did he sleep with you?


Why what?

You've messed up my life

Every morning I have to pick up your clothes from the floor

If they're stained, I'm the one that does the laundry

I always smell of delivered food.
It takes time to clean the smell

Did he screw you?

I enjoy hanging out at his place

It's clean and tidy. I don't need to clean it up

Can you let me finish?

Go ahead

Somebody leaked a video of us

But we haven't done anything out of line

Everybody from school knows it

You're going to be famous

What should I do?

What do you want me to do?

To sleep with that baldy and sign the sales contract?

You're the most selfish and disgusting person I know

No, that person is thousands of miles away

Go and find him!

You find this apartment dirty? Send for a cleaner!

Find a cleaner!

I have my own work to do!

You just do some shitty homework?

No time to find a cleaner?

I'll go and sleep with that baldy. Happy?

Yes! I'm calling him right away!

I'll tell him myself

My daughter is much younger

You make me sick

Same here

You know nothing about life

I don't have time to give you what you like

I'm living this messy life myself

My life's miserable

But it's not because of me

It's always been like this

I'm like this, you're like this

It's always been like this

Where're you going?

Who is it?

Where's your daughter?

She's not home. You can talk to me

You know what's going on?

I just learned

Well, a good mother you are

My daughter is a victim



Your husband is her teacher

Yes, Mr. Teacher. It's your turn

Calm down. We can talk it through

Talk? Talk about what?

Like how this 17-year-old little slut
hooked up with my man?

I'm gonna take a look at her

Only two rooms in this shithole, right?

Open the door!

You can talk to me

Don't stand in my way!
Get out, you dirty brat!

Who do you think you are?

Coming here for shit like this!

Stop making a scene

Come out Ling. You'll be fine

Shut the hell up!

I should bring our son and let him see who you are

Now you know shame? I'll kick the door in if you don't open it!

Why do you have to embarrass everybody?


I'm the most embarrassed one!

I'm the most embarrassed one in all of you!

Where are you going?


Any rides going there?


One adult ticket

One child

You sold me a fake ticket

We've never met

It's a fake ticket. Gimme my money

Where's the ticket?


Well then, how do I tell if this is a blackmail or not?

You're lying. I bought your ticket a couple hours ago

There're a million passengers at the station.
You got the wrong guy

I know the place where you get your tickets. Not here

What do you want?

Give me back my money or I'll call the cops

Cops? Well...

I'm not the person taking your money

I'm also the victim

Follow me and let's get your money back

Why did you sell fake tickets?

Bring the money with you

Give me your ID


Are you stupid?

You don't need an ID to buy a ticket?

Now give me half the ticket fare and I'll get you a new ticket

I know it's a fake one. I want my money back

You little shit. Never gotten on a train before, huh?

Running away from home is fun, huh?

You know what? I can kill you

Stop there

You're Wei Bu?


That's a fake name

Watch him and call Yu Cheng now

He's been looking for him


I'm taking you to where I served as a soldier


Should we tell Mom?

Do you want to?


Lets go then.

My brother is dead

What are you thinking?


If you're standing on a tall building's balcony

what would come up to your mind?

I would think

what else I can do


What else I can do



I was there this morning

I was at his apartment



I watched him jump off

Where are you running off to?


What for?

To see an elephant

You don't have any money

I spent it on a fake ticket

You have his ID card?


Go and buy him a ticket

Now you've killed someone

Somebody will get you anyway. I don't have to do it


I don't like my brother

But my parents do

Because he's like a little pussy

It was an accident. I didn't intend to hurt him

Accident or not, does it matter?

I don't like him. But he's still my brother

I have to deal with this

If my Dad had caught you, you'd be half dead by now

and then sent to a juvy

That'll be a lot of fun

Why do you help me?

I told you I don't like anybody

They all suck

Why let me go?

None of you business

You'll get the ticket soon. Just leave

I called the police!

Yu Cheng, let go of him!

Oh, you are that peeing boy!

I repeat, Yu Cheng. Let him go!

I'm not scared of you!

Stay out of this

I didn't tell anyone. Just the police

You sent him the location?

What the hell is that?

Go! Yu Shuai is dead. I'm not going!

I'll cover you!

Oh, he wants to cover you

What's that in your hand? You little snitch

Go back to your Mom. You shouldn't be here

Come on! Run!

Come on!

He asked for it

I didn't upload the video

What video?

The one with Huang Ling and the vice dean

You didn't have to end up the same way I did

You don't get it

Get what?

They are afraid of me

Most people won't feel this proud throughout their lives

You made it. They're all afraid of you

You're a hero


You're all going to hell

All of you!

Come on

do your homework before you use it!

The world is just disgusting

The train is cancelled

The bus can only make a transfer in Shenyang

Then we'll find other ways

Shenyang it is

Two tickets would do

I'm going back

You lied to me, Grandpa

Where are you going?

HoMy dog is dead.
No more defense against the nursing home

Don't cry

Why not?


No reason

You can go wherever you want

Yes, you can

However, you'll find nothing different

I learned this when I've wasted most of my life away

So I have to sugar-coat it

"There must be a difference"

Do you understand?

I do

No, you don't

You're looking for something else

Well the best solution is

you're right here

and you look over to the other side

You believe that it must be better than this

But you can't go

By not going

you learn to live with it here

Let's go and take a look
