Miles Apart is an observational documentary, intimately looking at the clash of different generations and cultures in a rapidly changing China. Twelve years ago, Laomao and his wife Meizi left their two children in the countryside to build a business 600 miles away. When they are joined by their daughter Ying Ying, it becomes immediately obvious that she doesn't share her parents' work ethic. Meizi's frustration is raw as she pushes her daughter towards employment and at the same time, her son Lei Lei won't apply himself to his studies. The separation of Chinese families by migration is a story shared by a quarter of rural parents, most of whom can relate to the frustrations of working hard for seemingly ungrateful children.
