Although only boys were allowed at the Confucius Academy, what Zhu Yingtai wanted was to go to school. She begged her parents to let her attend dressed as a boy and, seeing her determination and clever disguises, they finally agreed— as long as she kept her identity a secret and later returned to the traditional path they'd set for her. Lijun Zhang shares the Chinese myth of the butterfly lovers. [Directed by Amir Houshang Moein, narrated by Pen-Pen Chen, music by Salil Bhayani, cAMP Studio].
