What to do when you're a young Asian immigrant, living in a European slum, with no choice but to hit rock-bottom? On the usual menu, blackmailing, theft, prostitution…until one day, enough is enough. But the mafia won’t stand for that! Narrowly escaping the people who wanted him dead, Maoye is then picked up by a bizarre old woman. Taken care of in her hut filled with killer bees, he must listen to the strange stories she tells him every day. A story of wild young kids, even wilder and younger than him. They're on the run as well...but ready to do anything to find love and peace, no matter the price!
(Xiao Pan) Ten different Chinese authors decided to talk about their own vision of Beijing life, and the changes made to the city due to the 2008 Olympics. Various subjects are drawn here (destruction of old houses, athlete selection, pollution...) and the graphic styles vary from standard black ink to coloured works looking like contemporary art.
