In the year of the Beijing Olympics, a group of friends from London set themselves out to run the ancient Silk Road trading route to China, carrying an "alternative" Olympic flame. Complications and conflict test friendships and soon threaten their chances of success. Weaving in and out of the contemporary story are magical and timeless Chinese myths.
