Film: Luxury Car
Luxury Car (江城夏日) is the third film directed by Wang Chao. A Sino-French coproduction, it was released in 2006.

Li Qiming, an aging country schoolteacher, returns for the first time in 40 years to the sprawling metropolis of Wuhan in central China. He's looking for his estranged son, whom his cancer-stricken wife wants to see again before dying. His daughter, Yanhong, also lives in Wuhan, but although she had led him to think she had found a good job in the city, in fact she works as a "hostess" in a karaoke bar, and her employer, a former convict turned businessman, has made her his mistress.

With the help of a kindly policeman about to retire, Li Qiming follows one trail after another, all the while reconnecting with his long-neglected daughter.
