A film about the other side of Christmas

Communist ideals have long lost their value in Yiwu, a city with 600 Christmas factories, in which Christmas as we know it is produced for the entire world. With rising factory wages, most workers can now afford the newest iPhones, but they still live in crowded factory dormitories, all migrants in their own country. Stuck in between the Chinese traditions and the newly discovered Chinese dream, they want their own businesses, they want to be rich, to be independent, to be in love.
