China Stories: Community leader, Director Feng, has a surprising approach to cleaning up the environment. Yang Xi Wen spends around twelve hours a day on China's closely controlled internet. Cao Fei and Tong Yan are two seventeen year old girls who dream of escaping farm life to become successful clothes designers. Liu Hong Liang left a life in farming far behind when he moved to the city. What is life really like for them in modern day China?
