Nova, a 22-year-old drummer in one of Beijing’s most beloved indie bands, lives in two very different worlds. One is the passionate, surreal universe of Beijing’s underground rock scene that she shares with her friends and bandmates Lei and Di Yin. The other is the sleepy neighborhood of Nova’s childhood where her lonely, off-kilter father still lives. After finding out that her band has been invited to perform at a music festival in the United States, Nova moves through the hazy Beijing summer caught between these two worlds and a secret of the uncertain future—she is falling in love and nothing will be the same again.
