Shangri la is a mystical land in the Buddhist mythology, a place belonging to the earthly world, but simply cannot be located on a map. Built on the water at 60 km of Seoul in the province of Incheon, New Songdo City is designed as the first “ubiquitous” and “sustainable” city in the world. Still under construction, it has been thought as a testing ground for every imaginable new technology: “Global business utopia”.

Shangri la is a journey into the heart of this unlimited development and omni presence of RFID technologies. Two characters, one curious when the other doesn’t belong to this world, are exploring this future already perceptible:
New Songdo between nowadays and 2020, the first step before the complete lost of our individual liberties.
