The China Dream

In 2012, the General Secretary of China, Xi Jinping, announced what would become the hallmark of his administration: The China Dream, described as the "national rejuvenation, improvement of people’s livelihoods, prosperity, construction of a better society and a strengthened military.” This first episode of "Mosaic" explores the reality of that dream from many perspectives — young and old Chinese, living in cities, the countryside and abroad.

Xi specifically addresses the young people, "dare to dream, work assiduously to fulfill the dreams and contribute to the revitalization of the nation." Further, he calls upon all levels of the Party and the government to facilitate favorable conditions for their career development. Xi told young people to "cherish the glorious youth, strive with pioneer spirit and contribute their wisdom and energy to the realization of the Chinese dream." The shows host shares with the viewer what the China Dream is in political terms, providing data and stats as to the economic and political goals of the China Dream plan. But what does it mean, how does this dream play out in real life, at all levels of society, and particularly to China’s youth? And,why now? The idea of a Dream being introduced to China, how is it connected to economic achievement in the country? Have Chinese reached a stage where at basic needs are being met, so that they can start to have dreams? Through the selected collection of stories, we attempt to address these questions and ideas and provide a glimpse into a wide swathe of social strata, from the bottom of society to the very top."
