Synopsis
The 5000-seater West Lake Restaurant in the Chinese city of Changsha is the setting for this feature-doc. Old traditions and new money come together in a vibrant and colourful exploration of modern China. Central to the story is the restaurant´s owner, the unstoppable Mrs Qin, a Communist Party member with a love of singing.

Between mouth-watering and ´exotic´ Chinese food and the rousing Communist songs sung by the staff, the film examines how China has been transformed over the last few decades. It also poses the question: in this new affluent and ambitious China, who is thriving and who is left behind?

Many of life´s most important events take place on the West Lake´s stage and it is through these celebrations - a wedding between a wealthy property developer and his beautiful bride, a baby banquet and a grandmother´s birthday party - that the film explores the struggles and hopes of Chinese people today.
