Ming, a Chinese teen, is disillusioned by society’s “rules.” Upon meeting a young woman named Ace, the door is opened to allow Ming to live the life she’s always wanted. However, when society’s pressures begin to crowd in once again, that bond is put to the test, causing Ming to question who she is and where she belongs.  

Part political satire, part surrealistic love story, How to Live Your Life Correctly is a riotous depiction of youthful rebellion.
