 Synopsis 

From an apartment in Beijing, a woman is writing postcards to a man in London. The woman’s voice tells her loneliness in a rapidly changing China.



 
 Program Note 

A woman returns to Beijing after leaving her life in Britain of four years and sends a postcard to her lover. She is bewildered by the changes in Beijing in preparation of the Olympics. In the postcard she talks in a quiet tone about her feelings in Britain, and people‘s expectations of changing Beijing, restaurant workers, a butcher‘s shop and people on the street. However, the postcard was returned stamped ‘address unknown‘ and her lover has disappeared to a place where she cannot reach. There is anxiety and loneliness in her voice which is overlapped above the landscape of Beijing. The blind letter looks like the woman who can‘t find her way in China, switching over to a new era, nor in Britain to which she promised to go back. (BAE Ju-yeon)
