A trust fund baby's worst nightmare comes to life. 

Recent design grad Sasha has just been rejected by another potential employer. Despite being jobless, her million dollar trust fund enables her to live extravagantly amidst the LA scene. However, things quickly change the night of Sasha's 24th birthday party when her credit card gets declined. She immediately calls her father to complain but is given two options: return to China and work for the family toy business- or remain cut off. Reluctantly, Sasha complies. What simply begins as a way to regain financial backing develops into a life-altering experience as Sasha learns the family business from the ground up, and more importantly, learns to appreciate her estranged family. With hilarious moments as well as heartfelt ones, Go Back to China is a compelling portrayal of what happens when today's culture clashes with the old-school, hard-working values that families around the world have continued to instill and pass down. -Peter Koros
