Romantic and naive art student Xiaotong, who’s studying in the US, is trying to earn money for her graduation exhibition to prove to her conservative family the quality and talent in her art. She’s been selling paintings on the street, drawing illustrations for magazines and doing other part-time jobs in order to collect enough money for the exhibition. With all this hard work, her only wish is to let her mother finally see her hard work for its artistic quality, and give her acceptance.
