When spoiled rich girl Sasha Li blows through half of her trust fund, she is cut off by her father and forced to go back to China and work for the family toy business. What begins simply as a way to regain financial support soon develops into a life-altering journey of self discovery.
Director's Statement, Emily Ting:
GO BACK TO CHINA is the kind of story I got into filmmaking to tell. After an amazing run with ALREADY TOMORROW IN HONG KONG, I knew that there’s a deeper, an even more personal story that I needed to tell. And this time, I’m turning the camera on my own family. Yes, this film is as autobiographical as they come.
