An intimate drama following a Gen Z love triangle set in the snow-covered regions of northern China. Warmth and authenticity highlight this poignant story of love and friendship. 

In cold wintry Yanji, a city on China’s northern border, Haofeng meets Nana, a charming tour guide. When they team up with Xia, a personable restaurant worker over a drunken weekend, a complicated friendship is formed. As they confront their own individual traumas and desires they also journey to a remote icy landscape. The Breaking Ice is anchored by exceptional central performances and highlighted by beautiful cinematography.
