Four Chinese college graduates are brought together through an art project: Xi Roulan, an artist who invites strangers to her home. Qian Kecheng, a freelance illustrator who thrives on the freedom the megacity has to offer. Jiang Bo, a graphic designer, looking for steady employment. Cheng Minxian, a young woman working at one of the city’s most renown event agencies, while living with her parents.
While eager for life experience they yearn to lift their careers off the ground. Unified by their passion for life and self-determination, they long for an escape from anonymity.
