Handsome Fei moves to big city Beijing to work as a hustler, and as a dutiful son, he sends money he earned to his family who lives in a small rural village. However, he becomes disappointed and disillusioned when he realises his conservative family accepts his earnings but not his homosexuality. Broken-hearted, Fei seeks a new chapter in love and tries to create a new beginning with his life. This tender and stylish film gives us a glimpse into the secretive world of male sex workers or ‘moneyboys’ in China.
