Filmmaker Zou Peng examines how life and culture has changed in 21st Century China through the experiences of one young woman in this drama. Xiao Xue (Tian Yiwen) is 19-years-old and is striking out on her own in Harbin, a city in Northern China. Xiao Xue has a job working in an upscale clothing store, and after hours she often finds herself spending the evening with her boss, who uses her as his default escort when he has a social engagement. Xiao Xue also tags along when her boss hits the town with his friends, and she imagines that dipping her toes into Harbin's nightlife is introducing her to a larger and more exciting world. But Xiao Xue suffers a rude awakening about the consequences of her new life when she discovers she's pregnant, and the father of her child makes it clear he has no intention of standing by her. Dongbei, Dongbei (aka A North Chinese Girl) was an official selection at the 2009 Berlin International Film Festival.
