“China Gate" tells the story of young Chinese fight to change their fate through studying.Right before dawn, students in Huining have already started their self-studying session; hard working youngsters have filled up the space of school ground. This is one of the most poverty-stricken Counties in Western China; here people's only hope is in education, as the way to change their social status. Therefore all their effort point towards the College Entrance Examination, the process is like going through a gate, those who pass can study at urban Universities, and have the chance to build a better life.During the same winter season in Beijing, a graduate student faces a big decision. Should he keep trying to survive in the big city or get back to his countryside home? The exhausted faces at the Beijing underground seem to be revealing the truth about their distance in between. The student comes to see the flag ceremony at Tiananmen Square, where the pulsing symbol of the nation lies. However it is not giving any answer to his anxiety.

Shanghai's nightfall sparkles with its prosperity, but one graduate from Shanghai music conservatory tells her struggle of finding a place in society. The memories of handwork from early age and the high hope of parents seem like yesterday, the home video footage of her sitting in front of the piano at young age looked like a bittersweet joke. Jumping back to the present, in a playful early learning institute, it seems more like confusion appearing on these children's face. Is this a new educational method that gives the answer to the high hopes of parents?
