The family of Yang Yao-ting (Yang Zi-shan) returns to their village in Gansu after both of her parents are laid off from their jobs in Shenzhen, only to find that life has drastically changed in the village they left 25 years earlier. Hoping to provide her family with a home in the city, Yao-ting returns to Shenzhen to take part in high-risk medical tests, facilitated by a street hustler named Li Xinmin (Yin Fang). “Walking Past the Future” is the only Chinese film screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
