Growing Old is Inevitable
Growing Up is Optional!
a road movie… a comedy… and a romance
Esther has a romantic Chinese dream and after forty years she’s determined to live it! Along with Brad, her clumsy but good natured grandson, ‘Angelina’ Ling, a fiery girl with big ambitions, and Chang, the unconventional tour bus operator, they’re on a wild journey across China in a rattling old bus – and helping each other achieve their dreams.
