Based on the semi-autobiographical novel 'Could Be Beautiful' by Wang Shuo, the best-selling 'bad boy' of contemporary Chinese literature, and directed by Zhang Yuan, this film tells the story of four-year-old rebel Qiang (Dong Bowen) and his initiation into residential kindergarten. A fierce individualist by nature, Qiang finds it hard to adapt to the carefully organised, minutely scrutinised collective life at the kindergarten. But despite his indomitable will and resistance to discipline, he still craves the reward that he sees his fellows students win: the little red flowers awarded each day as tokens for good behaviour.
