Jan’s only real friend is his blind father Mogens. When Jan’s sister Lisbeth parks Mogens in a nursing home and Mogens apparently looses his will to live, Jan decides to give him something to live for: He stages a grand journey to China, in the middle of his two-room apartment in a desolate ghetto. China, a mythical land where Mogens once met the love of his life, Jans mother. But amidst the growing troubles of keeping the charade going, Jan meets a woman too.

Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
