Directed by Li Ruijun (“River Road”, 2014), “Walking Past the Future” is a Chinese drama that tells the story of a daughter (Yang Zishan; “Battle of Memories”, 2017) who risks her life to take part in a series of medical experiments in order to provide for her family.

A daughter (Yang Zishan) of aging migrant workers is coping with the harsh reality when their dream of a better future is crumbling in the era of drastic changes in China.
