CGiii Comment

A truly disturbing film...

Piaoyu Xie has taken 'less is more' to a new level...however, perhaps a little bit more would have raised this film into the stratosphere.

No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

A boy is looking for cicadas in a mundane summer day which is haunted by the shadow of death.
