In 1985, in the midst of China’s economic reform period, three college students meet. They bond through a shared fascination with Western literature, music and movies, and an ambition to live the American dream.

All three apply for student visas for the United States, but only one succeeds. This propels the trio to found of a wildly successful English-language tutorial institute—but sudden fame and fortune could tear the friends and their vision apart.

In Mandarin with English subtitles.
