FRONTLINE Young and Restless in China

They are westernized, savvy about today’s interconnected world, ambitious — and often torn between their culture and their aspirations. Set to an original soundtrack of Chinese rock and hip-hop music, this provocative film presents an in-depth look at what it means to be young and Chinese today.

FRONTLINE follows these nine individuals as they struggle to find their paths in the nation’s booming economy and confront the opportunities and challenges of modernity. As China prepares for its global “coming out” party at the Olympics, they highlight themes of capitalism, nationalism, identity and globalization that are creating the new China.
