When spoiled rich girl Sasha Li blows through half of her trust fund, she is cut off by her father and forced to go back to China and work for the family toy business. What begins simply as a way to regain financial support soon develops into a life-altering journey of self-discovery. Sasha not only learns the business from the ground up, but she also learns to reconnect with her estranged family. Go Back to China is a hilarious, heartfelt and compelling portrait of what happens when today’s Millennial culture clashes with the old-school, hardworking values that families around the world have continued to instill and pass down.
