Having never seen Van Gogh’s original paintings, Zhao’s biggest dream is to travel to Amsterdam to see the works of his legendary associate. In Europe, his encounter with Van Gogh’s paintings brings an epiphany.

HIINA VAN GOGHID

Autorid Haibo Yu, Kiki Tianqi Yu Zhao Xiaoyong

on pärit kaugest Hiina kolkakülast, aga oma elu üles ehitanud linnas ja siin sellest kunstiteose vorminud tänu Van Goghile. Ta on tänaseks koos oma perega kuulsa hollandlase maalidest 90 000 koopiat valmistanud, mis Euroopas kaubaks läinud. Zhao pole kunagi Hiinast kaugemal käinud. Kui mees lõpuks Amsterdami jõuab ning seal Van Goghi originaalidega kohtub, siis tabab teda üsna kopsakas üllatus.
