Director Statement:

Having worked on projects in China for six years, I've developed a deep appreciation for China's rich history and culture. I was thrilled when producer Wang Zunzheng approached me to direct writer Kenjin Xiong's touching story of a high school graduate struggling through a trip she's ill-equipped to take, all to fulfill her sick friend's goal of seeing the Yellow River, which is both a stunning landscape and enduring symbol of China's identity.

The most important thing for me was to give international audiences a glimpse at everyday life in today's China through the eyes of the next generation. In the process, I'm honored to present a touching story of struggle, loss, and perseverance that I think will resonate with audiences in every country.
