When Chen Yiduo was seven years old, Bi Shixi, an old comrade of his father Chen Dadong, sent his son Bi Laifu to the Chen family so that Laifu could receive a better education.
Chen Yiduo, Bi Laifu, and their little friends grew up together in the factory compound.
Chen Yiduo failed in the college entrance examination and was employed in his father’s bicycle factory, while Laifu chose to work in the factory in order not to burden his adoptive parents.
The children who grew up together went their own way, and Laifu and Yiduo began to face their work, love, and life.
In 1998, the automobile industry was developing rapidly and the old bicycle factory was declining.
Laifu felt that the bicycle factory was the memory of their generations. For this sentiment, he contracted the assembly workshop to attract investment to refurbish the production line.
The brothers, who grew up together, got together again and started a new business, using new ideas for production and management, making the old “Flying” bicycle factory young again.
