One Billion Stories is a series of short films set in Shanghai about the people we pass by every day. In this video, the BBQ street vendor Steven talks about his life as a migrant worker in Shanghai, his view on freedom and independence and his ideal China. He says:

In my ideal China, people don't have to struggle, don't have to be so busy making a living, don't have to live so tired everyday, no tough life, then we will have more time to spend with others, and to do what we like. When China develops to a certain level, we don't have to struggle that hard, we don't have to only focus on making a living everyday, and neglect other things. When people don't have to worry about making a living, people will get along better. You don't have to play tricks any more. So you can do things you really like.
