Shanghai Youth

Xiao Wei, Cao Cao, Fang Fang, Xiang Xiang, Yulan and Zuguo are 20-year-old Chinese people from the agricultural provinces of central China. As garment workers, they work tirelessly to one day be able to set up their own workshop, buy a house, and raise a child. Friendships and romantic relationships between them blossom with the seasons, and fall apart with the stress of bankruptcies and family pressures.
