Zhou Chongbo, a marketing agent in Beijing, comes up with an absurd though effective idea to promote Mr. Wan’s photo-editing app: blessed by a mysterious Buddhist master, the app becomes a cult phenomenon, shared by millions of users. However, when people begin to bless everything, often with ambiguous purposes, the situation turns into a nightmare and Zhou Chongbo must run away… from the city, from the company, and from his own family, to take refuge in a Buddhist temple with unexpected consequences for himself… and the entire universe.
Inspired by the famous short story by Chen Qiufan, “Buddhagram” was adapted by the Chinese Science Fiction author himself and illustrated by Jacopo Cigarini.
