A pair of working class lovers - a secretary and an accountant, scheme to marry into the rich landed gentry. Their targets are a professor, Vittorio Gordini Malvezzi, who is running for municipal office as a Socialist candidate, and his sister Elena, a great lady who lets every man in town climb on top of her but won't marry because socially they're all beneath her.

China is Near was Italian filmmaker Marco Bellocchio's second feature film. The director and the film’s lead actress Elda Tattoli wrote the script for this smart scathing satire on modern-day sex and politics.
