To Qiu Shui, a young lad in his most hungry, curious, and restless 20s, the whole world can feel pornographic. Studying at China's top medical college, he can break down men's carnal impulses with solid human anatomy knowledge but can't grasp his own inner desire that draws him to three disparate women-the fairylike hometown first love, the marriageable college girlfriend, and the sensuous businesswoman. It's the 1990s when China just opened up to exciting opportunities and risks. Unprecedented social fluidity provokes individuals'materialist and romantic appetites. The cruel new world crushes Qiushui's burning passion. Each of his lovers moves on, leaving him alone in emotional pains. As he looks back at his chaotic youth as a grownup years later, he's rewarded a deeper understanding of what it means to live and love. Adapting best selling novelist Feng Tang's "Everything Grows", award-winning director Li Yu reunites with her long-time collaborator Fan Bingbing to narrate a story from a male protagonist for the first time.
