The story talks about an Italian engineer who went to China to fix a defect of old Italian steel-making equipment.
This movie shows real people's life (if not all, at least some) and the changing of society during the rapid development of the country.
Vincenzo is an Italian engineer in a steel mill in bankruptcy, which is being acquired by a group of Chinese mem. Vincenzo, not well understanding the real consequences of his work, is sent to China because there must advertise and repair a particular machine factory. Vincenzo gets help from a young translator of Chinese, and the two falls in love; but he, when he returns to Italy, finds out that the factory is purchased, and that all Italian workers are laid off. So Vincenzo goes to China in an almost personal challenge to fix a potentially dangerous fault to the same machine now in China in spite of local people's indifference.
