Proof that global cinema can come from our own backyard (producer Youcai Yang calls Milwaukee his home), Scott Road is a coming-of-age story told with uncommon poise and precision. On the verge of the lunar new year in 1949 Shanghai, a 15-year-old boy develops a crush on his young substitute teacher, who just so happens to be his older brother's ex-girlfriend. With both young men set to leave for Taiwan, they must find their own ways to say farewell to their shared love.
