Product Overview

In a poor village in northern China, a small boy named Li Cunxin was given the chance of a lifetime. Selected by Chairman Mao''s officials from among millions of children to become a dancer, Li''s new life began as he left his family behind.

At the Beijing Dance Academy, days were long and difficult. Li''s hard work was rewarded when he was chosen yet again, this time to travel to America.

From there his career took flight, and he danced in cities around the world--never forgetting his family, who urged him to follow his dreams.
