Oho Ou and Jing Tian’s Fist & Faith (青禾男高) held a press conference a few days ago and released a trailer, giving us a better idea of the overall tone of the movie.

The coming-of-age film Fist & Faith (青禾男高) will be hitting theaters on July 14th. Leading the campus pack of boys is Oho Ou, and his gang of “brothers” includes Zhang Ningjiang, Zhou You, Ding Guansen, and Yin Fang.
