a beautiful biodrama of a young man growing up in china, then moving to the USA. but this masks the real story. heavily indoctrinated as a youth, works diligently to become a master dancer. then takes a summer program in houston where he learns about america firsthand. and realizes all he has been taught is a lie. falls in love, not just with a woman, but also with the freedom of his craft. but not returning is heart-rending, as he may never see his family again. focus is on his decision to stay, what it means for him professionally as well as personally. really pulls you into his world, his thinking, his views. wonderful film version of a difficult but majestic life.
