Synopsis

Today and Tomorrow tells a story of three young people who just graduated from college.

Through their struggles, frustration and confusion, the film reflects a unique aspect of modern Chinese society and encourages young people to face the problem in order to fight for a better future.

唐家岭,北京西北五环外的一个普通村庄,由于这里距离中关村、上地等企业密集区比较近、房租便宜,大量外地来京人员选择在此租住,这个村子因此声名远播。还从中诞生了一个名词“蚁族”。本片讲述的就是几位蚁族的青春故事。冉冉和小杰是一对情侣,和他们的大学同学王旭一起租住在唐家岭。冉冉一直有一个做服装设计师的梦想,可是不得不到裁缝店打工养活自己;小杰心高气傲,一直找不到工作,依赖冉冉打工的收入生活;可是冉冉却不知道,小杰为了帮助她实现梦想做了很多……王旭适应不了保险行业,同时也为自己和村里的一位妓女的关系烦恼,最后妓女为了逃避他悄悄搬走,王旭也决定给自己“放一年假”,到一家老水瓶厂轻松打工一年,调整好状态后再回到社会拼搏。
