"Trois vies chinoises: Un gamin de treize ans, atteint d'une maladie rare qui lui donne l'aspect d'un petit vieux, est acheté par le directeur de la cantine d'une prison. Une jeune fille, encore lycéenne, est convaincue de la culpabilité de son père, gardien d'un réservoir d'eau, dans la disparition de sa mère. Une ancienne forgeronne ranime son fourneau pour fabriquer une chaîne de fer qui attachera son fils à un arbre. Ces trois vies parallèles se déroulent simultanément, dans un même lieu: l'étrangement nommée île de la Noblesse. Un décor gigantesque, digne d'un film de science-fiction, où affluent les déchets et matériels électriques de tout un pays, la Chine moderne, l'atelier du monde. Ces trois histoires, aux images brutales et fulgurantes, s'imposent par leur force poétique et leur paradoxale liberté"--Page 4 of cover
