Here’s a synopsis of the film:

In a mid-sized Chinese city, a drunk, unruly passenger causes Lao Shi’s taxi to accidently hit a motorcyclist. Instead of speeding away, the doggedly decent Lao Shi leaps to the injured man’s aid, taking him to a nearby hospital when calls to emergency personnel prove futile. Under Chinese law, however, Lao Shi becomes responsible for the victim’s burgeoning, seemingly unending medical bills. (Ironically, had the victim had been killed by the accident, Lao Shi’s responsibilities would have ended with the payment of a nominal fine.) Lao Shi wants to do the right thing, but everyone around him, including his wife, begin to ridicule and abandon him for his ostensibly outdated moral code.

Based on a real-life incident, Old Stone evolves from a Kafkaesque nightmare of bureaucratic dodge, insurance loop holes and legal atrocities into a harrowing, impossible-to-shake thriller that drops us into the center of an ethical labyrinth.

The info about the film in Chinese:

《老石》是2015年中国北京世纪润石国际文化传媒有限公司拍摄影片,在中国大陆和加拿大联合制片。影片片长80分钟,于2016年2月12日在柏林电影节上映。《老石》由马楠担任导演,陈刚、耐安、王宏伟等担任主演,讲述了小镇出租车司机老石由于一场车祸,不得不持续支付伤者高昂的医疗账单,从而彻底改变了两个陌路人的命运的故事。该影片在第41届多伦多国际电影节荣获最佳加拿大处女作称号。
