横店影视城被称为“中国好莱坞”,是亚洲最大的影视基地,镇上最大的建筑是一个按照故宫1:1修建的皇宫。2014年,这个小镇吸引了多达1300万游客,150多个电视剧团体,30万人为电影和电视拍摄工作;15家娱乐公司将上市,4.2万部电影和电视剧在这里制作。

每年有近万名年轻人来到这里,追逐梦想。他们大多来自农村家庭,未成年,收入适中,教育背景低,但努力融入这个系统。残酷的生存法则和狭窄的发展空间中,群众演员每天的收入不到100元,凝视着名利场闪烁的诱惑幻象,这些年轻的面孔,正显露出梦想转化成欲望、焦虑和迷茫的模样。

Hengdian World Studios locates in China and features a 1:1 scale reproduction of the Forbidden City. It's the biggest film and television based in Asia which is claimed as "Chinese Hollywood".

The Chinese film industry is booming. In 2014, this small town attracted up to thirteen million tourists, more than 150 teleplay groups; about 300,000 figurants work for the film and television shooting; 15 entertainment companies are to be listed. At least 42,000 movies and television plays have been produced here, which takes up one-quarter of the output of China.

Thousands of young dreamers pursue here. Most of them are from rural families with modest means and low education backgrounds but have to struggle in society although they're still minors. Their income is less than 10 dollars per day. In spite of the cruel survival environment and the narrow development space, what rose before them is the great prospect of gaining fame and fortune, but only desires, anxieties, and confusions can be seen on those young faces.

It's a story about how downtrodden young people from the rural areas work entry-level jobs in China’s booming film industry as a way to barely make ends meet and a photographic record of a place under the "jungle law'.
