The unemployed university student, the woman who is forced to sell herself, the primary school teacher who can barely make ends meet, the old newspaper vendor whose son died in the war, all these people live under one “roof” in Shanghai, just as one symphony of the ordinary life of the “little people”.

Suitable for those who currently live in a shared house.

Under the Roofs of Shanghai is part of a new series, Global Stage on Screen, brought to you by NGO UK-China Film Collab and All The Way.
