Clip from Mao's Last Dancer  |  Nine  |  June 8, 2013

Ben takes Li shopping. Afterwards, Li visits the Chinese consulate where he is warned of the dangers of American capitalism and reminded to fulfil his Communist principles. During a flashback, Li's father tells him a parable about a frog and the knowledge of a different world. Back in Houston, Li struggles to reconcile life in American, the excess and wealth, with his memories of home and labour in Qingdao, Shandong province, China.
