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, as she learns the business from the ground up and reconnects with her estranged family in the process.Go Back to China is a hilarious, heartfelt, and compelling portrait of what happens when today’s Millennial culture clashes with the old school, hard working values that families around the worldhave continued to instill and pass down. It also offers an honest look at the human cost of things that are made in China.

  • A fantasy

    By RayMacD
    From a critical standpoint, this film draws upon hope for improvement of the human condition. We all pull for that. This 'story' is not a documentary or in any way have a relation to the realities in mainland China. Centered around an exceptionally wealthy, priveleged young woman, we follow her partying social life and her transformation--brought about by her father's (her sister's) demand she return to China to work in the factory he owns. This is an enjoyable story with intra family complexities playing out. However, there is no connection to reality....and, to this reviewer, leaves a worrying impression that this film is a wish-fulfillment fantasy--made excruciaitingly apparent in the movie's framing of a wildly generous gift to the Chinese factory workers. ....If only.

  • Really heart warming family story

    Really hits close to home. Amazing story with great acting. Anna Akana really shines and always loved Lynn Chen since she started out with Saving Face. She always kills it and would love to see them in more big roles.

    This was an entertaining movie. This movie is about a seemingly spoiled girl in America that didn’t understand where the money she spent came from till it stopped. Then she went to China to work for the family business to try to get the money back. There she learned so much more about her family and the business and also herself. Basically this was a great story line, and good portrayal of complex family dynamics that are very relatable. I have recommended to friends.

    What a great movie ! It was funny, witty and kept me watching. Think any Asian American can relate to this movie in some way. Nicely written. We need more movies like this.

  • Emily Ting Does It Again!

    By Mark Kwan
    I’ve loved Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong. It was extremely witty and beautifully shot. I was a bit hesitant to watch this because of how perfect her previous movie was. When the movie finished and the credits started rolling, I found myself clapping in extreme satisfaction. It was an amazing heartfelt movie with a great message about family. I’ve watched it several times with friends and family. I can’t wait for her next work!

    While the acting was ok and in general I really enjoy cross cultural films, this one was simplistic, poor character development, oh so so. there re so many other excellent cross cultural and multi language films, this one does not make the grade in my opinion. H
