Time goes by,suddenly, zhiyun needs zhihao's help. He found out that she has lots of dogs at home.Zhi yun tells him the story of his father caught by the police. On the way home, zhiaho found out that the dog's picture is the same on the Missing dog fly, therefore, they return the dog. By the deadline's coming, they come out the way to earn the money...

The greatest lesson I've learned is that How to figure out the content of the movie out of the regulation . The concept of this movie is about the system of values in society of my country nowadays.Try to cover the practical world by the love story and hope to strike a chord.

I'm a Film-maker(director and scenarist). The most difficult challenge is that we used limited and independent fund to make the movie within only 6days and shooting over 16 places. Every scene is setting by the team which is made by students.

YoungFilmmakers screens quarterly in New York at Anthology Film Archives. Opened in 1970 by Jonas Mekas, Jerome Hill, P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, and Stan Brakhage, Anthology in its original conception was a showcase for the Essential Cinema Repertory collection. An ambitious attempt to define the art of cinema by means of a selection of films which would screen continuously, the Essential Cinema collection was intended to encourage the study of the medium’s masterworks as works of art rather than disposable entertainment, making Anthology the first museum devoted to film as an art form. The project was never completed, but even in its unfinished state it represented an uncompromising critical overview of cinema’s history, and remains a crucial part of Anthology’s exhibition program.
