Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Yang Yazhou's drama Pretty Big Feet is about a pair of very different women who become friends.

While the two butt heads initially, Zhang soon realizes that everything Xia does is to help Zhang's students. Xia's marriage is going through a very rough patch, and Zhang attempts to strike up a romance with a local projectionist. The film concludes when the two women make a trip to Beijing.
