Three close buddies at Beijing's prestigious Yanjing University -- Cheng Dongqing (Huang Xiaoming), Wang Yang (Tong Dawei) and Meng Xiaojun (Deng Chao) -- are studying and simultaneously prepping for American visa interviews. 

Wang is the first to be granted one but forfeits it to stay with his Western girlfriend and Cheng is repeatedly denied one. Only Meng actually gets a study visa and as he's leaving he tells his friends he has no intention of returning to China...:
