Each year, hundreds of thousands of Chinese students arrive in the United States to attend college, making up one-third of international students. After arriving, they are often confronted with loneliness and culture-shock. The resulting isolation makes them particularly susceptible to outside influences, and consequently thousands of these young arrivals convert to Christianity. Arriving in North Carolina to study filmmaking, Director Hao Zhang is surprised at the existence of this unique community and takes up his camera to follow various new students as they balance the pressures of community, identity, and belonging, in an attempt to help him come to terms with his own feelings of isolation and aimlessness.
