As the glistening Cartier sign, the visually arresting skyscrapers, and the shining BMWs and Ferraris scream out China's unprecedented prosperity, the question confronting a young generation of Chinese who came of age during the period of rapid economic growth is an anxious one: Is this all there is?

Researched and co-produced by Ying Zhu, "China: From Cartier to Confucius" follows a group of students at an elite Chinese university as they question the value of a market-fundamentalist developmental path China has embarked upon. Through the work of Confucius, this group of self-claimed cultural conservatives is exploring an alternative political and social system anchored on Chinese cultural tradition as opposed to the Marxist or Liberal Democratic model of Western origin.
