The Fragile House

Maguas Section

Over the course of the last twenty years, China has grown economically at a pace that has completely changed its social, cultural and human structure. Ways of life that had survived for centuries have been swept away in just a few years. A conflict arises in the bosom of a family of medium-size entrepreneurs due to an unpaid debt between two sisters. Bonds of affection are broken and the financial demands begin to reposition the whole family. While the oldest members remain anchored in traditions that are in fact practically dead, the youngest are trapped in their addiction to new technologies. An old world begins to vanish as the profound limitations of the new one are laid bare.
