The film follows a number of different characters who work for "The World Park", an amusement park in a suburb of Beijing which contains a number of scaled-down reproductions of famous attractions from around the world such as those seen on the poster there. The two main characters are a couple, a woman named Tao (on the poster) who works as a performer at the park and man named Taisheng who is a security guard at the park. At first they look happy enough, but as the film progresses it seems evident that they are only together because both of them lack the opportunities to do what they truly desire. It seems that Tao desires nothing more than to see the world but lacks a passport (which apparently is difficult to get, I don't really know how Chinese administration works in this regard but I would assume its not easy as this seems to be a major obstacle for the character), while Taisheng is just trying to make his big break and become a successful business man. Unfortunately both of their dreams seem just out of reach. There are a number of subplots dealing with the other characters as well, all which deal with ideas of space in someway.
