Running the Silk Road
Exhilarating and richly visual, Running the Silk Road
tells a modern story mixed with Chinese myths using the whirling excitement of the Beijing Opera Theatre. In the year of the Beijing Olympics, a group of friends set themselves an epic challenge - to run the ancient Silk Road trading route to China, carrying an 'alternative' Olympic flame. Once on the road, complications and conflict test friendships and threaten their chances of success.
