This chapter discusses how malcontented young adults rebel against various aspects of the established society, in terms of education, intellectual elite, morality, domestic and social authority, and sexual values. It examines this portrayal of “rebellion” in films such as Awakening (Su xing, 1980), Drive to Win (Sha Ou, 1980), Masters of Mischief (Wanzhu, 1988), and Samsara (Lun hui, 1988).

Keywords:   young adults, education, intellectual elite, morality, authority, sexual values, rebellion, Awakening, Drive to Win, Masters of Mischief
