Chinaland follows Alyssa, a New York gallery owner, as she attempts to escape her own identity by putting her life in the hands of an illicit Chinese cultural fantasy service. But when the service’s CEO substitutes himself into her fantasy in lieu of the pre-selected male lover, a steamy love affair ensues. Reality and fantasy collide, and the service’s elaborate made-to-order village has to be shut down. Abandoned and bewildered, Alyssa is forced to find her bearings in modern China and track down the lover who betrayed her. Along the way, she must contend with whether she’s seeking revenge, or just holding onto a lost fantasy.
