About the series

Today, Shanghai is one of the most exciting and stylish cities on the planet, as well as one rife with contrasts and contradictions. It has found itself caught in a constant cycle of creative destruction. Young people, whose grandparents starved in the famines of Mao's Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution, drink Champagne, Cognac and super-premium whisky under the gaudy lights of nightclubs. Here patrons do not come to dance but come to flaunt their new-found wealth. Many believe this wealth and love of excess apparent in Chinese society, is the birth of the Chinese Dream.
