A new streaming drama On The Way to Hope, which focuses on China's rural revitalization efforts hit China's streaming giant Tencent Video on Wednesday. 

The story follows a young man who went to university in Shanghai as he gives up a chance for a high-paying job to return to his hometown, a small remote village in Southwest China.  

Starring Cao Jun and An Yuexi, the series focuses on a group of young people who have returned to their small villages to help locals find opportunities to overcome poverty. 

According to the series' production team, the show will tackle issues such as social responsibility and the reform of the education system. 

Scriptwriter Rao Jun said he hopes to raise public awareness of these problems and inspire young people not to forget where they came from.
