MADE IN CHINA
Made in China it’s a bold capture of personal growth and self-acceptance in a country where a voiceless generation fights for the opportunity to be himself.
A universal story in a conflicting and unknown world.
The celebration of the Chinese New Year are coming and Yu Liang Yuan (21 years old) starts it’s journey from the industrial colony where he residesin Shenzhen to his birthplace in Henan (inland of the Asiatic giant).
But these aren’t any regular holidays. This year, his visit is crucial for his future and that of his family. He hopes to get engaged with an old schoolmate with whom he’s been dating.
What nobody could actually foresee, is that she and her family have been looking over other candidates and have decided that Yῡ Liang Yuan’s family is not rich enough to accept their marriage proposal.
This unexpected turn of events will force Yῡ Liang Yuan to start questioning the world around him and the need to follow a set of rules and traditions which he doesn’t really share. Forcing him to face a hard issue: who he is and what he truly wants.
