The very much unauthorised biopic centres around a young Chinese student who is assigned a history project where he must write about an activist, he chooses Tupac because he is listening to him in class. The student’s teacher then gives him the number of one of Tupac’s ex-girlfriends who, coincidentally, happens to be living in China. The student then goes on a journey learning about Tupac, which ultimately teaches him about life.
