During the eight-month rehearsal, five students compete for roles, struggle with pressure from family and authority, and prepare to graduate into China’s corrupt entertainment industry.

Press

  • The Road to Fame shows what it means to be young, spoilt and talented in China. The film is a terrific showbiz epic that delves deep into such distinctively Chinese themes as how great the expectations of China's only children are, and how intensely parents strive for their fulfillment.
    -Nick Fraser, BBC Storyville
