America is dead. And washed-up tech entrepreneur Jimmy Van Horn is pushing the reset button. He's moving himself and his shell company to Shenzhen, China.
Shenzhen: A fishing village 3 decades ago now the biggest city you've never heard of. A fantasia of craven capitalists where wheels of industry spin so fast it’s "literally impossible to walk down the street without making money - if you know the right people."
Lucky for Jimmy, he’s got a friend holding open the back door to this silicon Shangri-La. Bob Grainger has been here a long time and it shows — he’s got new teeth, a blonde wig and got twenty years younger. He promises to do the same for Jimmy in 6 weeks. Bob’s got friends too: Like Vincent X. — a 25 year old Chinese tech heir who employs thousands of migrant workers making everything from iPhone knock offs to KFC toys. And his sidekick “Specialist” - a 29 year old from the Mojave Desert turned Chinese sourcing lord with a profound disdain for his fellow Americans. With friends like them, who needs enemies? But in China enemies make dreams come true.
Ghostbox Cowboy, from filmmaker John Maringouin, is a cinematic adventure like no other -- the first U.S narrative feature shot entirely in one of the world's most secretive and essential places: Chinese Tech Manufacturing.
