NEW YEAR'S EVE

It’s not always easy to come home and face your family on New Year’s Eve, especially for 19-year- old XIAOYU, who returns to his childhood home in rural Gansu, China with a medal he won at his kung fu school and mixed feelings about whether to show it to his mother, JUAN, who has always wanted him to go to a “real” college instead.
