In 2010 a delegation of Chinese architects travelled to Cadaqués, on the Costa Brava, to take notes for the large-scale replica of the town they were planned to build in Xiamen, on the southeast coast of China. Six years later, young entrepreneur Tingting sets off to spend the weekend in her flat in Kadakaisi, the Chinese Cadaqués. The film weaves between the original and replica, reality and dream, time and memory, through the landscapes of Cadaqués, Kadakaisi, Xiamen and Cap de Creus.


Lluís Galter (Figueres, 1983) studied audiovisual communication at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona and the FAMU Film School in (FAMU). He has written and directed several shorts, including one made at FAMU, and the feature film Caracremada (2010).
