Katharina Copony follows the trail of three Chinese immigrants who wound up in Bucharest in the 1990s. Using episodes from their personal and business environments, which are marked by stark contrasts, @i:OCEANUL MARE:i@ talks about being different, about cultural displacement and the challenge of plunging into the unknown and at the same time always having to reinvent yourself.
