The movie comically presents a generation known as China’s new little emperors through a foreigner’s perspective.  When Howie Snyder goes to China to study standup comedy with a group of loveable 8 year olds, he does not only adapt to a new culture but also finds some unforgettable friends.  He later returns and seeks out all his old friends.  The classmates portray the drastic changes in China over those few years with changed homes, opinions, careers, and future dreams.
