Director Bo Hu's (29) first and last film. He committed suicide shortly after completing post, and cited this quote from All The Pretty Horses as inspiration for the film:

he thought that the world’s heart beat at some terrible cost and that the world’s pain and its beauty moved in a relationship of diverging equity and that in this headlong deficit the blood of multitudes might ultimately be exacted for the vision of a single flower.

I haven't seen it yet, but just watching the trailer and reading about it made me very emotional and sad.
