Chronicling the journey of three magician hopefuls, the film depicts the challenges of following an unconventional career path. Forget about parents, family, or friends who may not understand or support your choices — there’s almost an invisible societal pressure in terms of what types of jobs are acceptable. Those willing to risk everything to take the road not normally taken shows that sometimes the risk pays off, sometimes it doesn’t. English and Chinese with English subtitles. Unrated. 71 mins. DVD.
