Pier Las Vegas

A Film by Yun Xie

Synopsis

无言之城
GAO Xing, a hearing-disabled and vocally impaired person from a small town China, an ordinary house keeper at a Las Vegas casino hotel, always rummage through the guests’ luggages secretly while cleaning the room to search for clues about his sister who was adopted by an American family long ago.

Hotel work is only a part of GAO’s life. He shuttles in the crowds at the most prosperous city with a teddy-bear suite after work, and distributes the tracing notices to passers.

At one afternoon, when Gao was cleaning a room, he found a little bear toy which was hand-stitched by her mother when he was young. Gao was smiling and tearing, but he couldn’t hear the continuous gunshots outside the window. The massive shooting at the Las Vegas Music Festival later on shocked the world is happening.
