China, like most of us, dreams big and wants to escape the routine and life where she feels entrapped, but because of a cruel irony of fait she will never be able to have a lollipop in New York. Lovely short-film that shows how a Chinese young woman living in Lisbon can also have ambitions far beyond housekeeping, motherhood and being a submissive wife.
