Marco Polo once described the southern Chinese city of Suzhou as the “Venice of the East”. And yet, where streams once flowed, there is now mainly barren wasteland. A community of travellers now stops here to set up their circus. A single house still stands, all boarded up — but not for long. The wasteland has long since become a place of interest to property speculators. A gang of petty thieves including one named Superman is ordered to expel the circus people.
