The Red House. A romance in globalization

Lee and Jia Stuart live in a red house in a small New Zealand town. She is of Chinese origin. He, a native. They spend their old age together sharing small everyday moments, but a new time comes and puts into perspective the life they have lived so far.

A trip to a big city appears as a new challenge. Are they going after a more genuine notion of home? Does it matter where they both live together, being from two very different places? In an audacious proposal, the film's director mixes documentary and fiction to tell a contemporary story about human relationships in globalization.
