Modern Shanghai is a global city in the midst of a renaissance, where dreamers arrive each day to partake in a mad torrent of capital, ideas, and opportunity. Focusing on the Shanghai street where he lives, NPR's Rob Schmitz profiles a broad cross section of residents—including a shopkeeper, a musician, and a capitalist—who are each on enlightening, humorous, and at times heartrending journeys along the winding road to the Chinese Dream. The result is an intimate and surprising portrait that dispenses with the tired stereotypes of a country we think we know, immersing us instead in the vivid stories of the people who make up one of the world's most captivating cities.
