Set in post-1949 Beijing, China at a residential nursery school, a rebellious 4 year-old Qiang starts there and finds the system very restrictive and difficult to cope with. Struggling to fit in and conform as required, he never receives the little red flowers the other pupils are awarded. His longing for this achievement results in him using his charm and wits to scheme against the teacher.
The film is a contemporary satire that examines the inherent pressure of being forced to fit into the confines of a society.
