“Like our generation, we don’t have our own culture”, shouted Mr. Wan Qian(by Zhuang Yibin).There are several young men who have their own dreams but never strive to realize them. Watching film is one way for them to escape from the reality. One day, they discovered that they were of no more pompous qualifications. At the time of feeling lost, they finally decided to make a science film of Calabash Transformer...
It’s a documentary movie, telling the true story about a dream being pursued by Mr. Wanqian and his best friends, Mr. Lin Guang(by Zhuang Jianghang) and Mr. Ma Sandi(by Li Ji). They ask help from their Big Sister, Ms. Feng Zheng(by Gao Yifang), film interviewees by their new and strange methods, PK with Zuozuo(by Zuo Minghao) from School of Film. Though they are young men with drive and initiative, for lack of funds and experience, they meet a barrage of filming troubles. In the end, the young master of rich family, childish Ma Sandi (by Li Ji) went back to run his father’s business. The others would also graduate from their school soon afterwards. University nurtures a temporary escapism, but it’s not a permanent shelter from reality. Once the graduation time comes, everyone has to leave. As the director of this film, Mr. Wanqian(by Zhuang Yibin), who suffered the unprecedented pressure, was forced to make a big decision. Were they able to work out their science film? Let’s wait and see.
The prototypes of the characters of this film could be found in the real production team. Even some plots happened are of real stories took place in their life. Therefore, it’s a story of production crew themselves.
This film is dedicated to all dream chasers with great minds and high aims.
