Vanishing Dreams explores the problem of China‚Äôs rising housing prices as experienced by recently graduated university students. The film also explores the cultural pressures China places on youth in owning a home, as opposed to renting. For newly graduated students, despite an economic boom, these pressures combined with the lack of job availability make it increasingly hard to live a normal and fulfilling life. Focusing largely on a game designer named Dai, Vanishing Dreams paints a portrait of contemporary Chinese youth struggling to make ends meet, enjoy life, and pursue the more and more unattainable dream of a bigger place to live.”
