‘Papa’ (学爸) is a 2023 Chinese comedy-drama written and directed by Su Liang.

The film follows a father and mother as they attempt to do all they can to help their son achieve early success in China’s education system. The cast includes Huang Bo, Shan Yuhao, Yan Ni, Janine Chang, and Zhang Zixian.

Synopsis: Lei Dali (Huang Bo) is forced to get involved in the fierce competition for the promotion of his son, Lei Mi (Shan Yuhao), to primary school to give him a better start in life. His mother, Liu Zhenzhen (Yan Ni), has been trying her best but it’s just far too difficult to achieve as a single parent. Dali decides to spend all of his money to buy a house in the school district and the new living arrangements soon see tensions mounting. However, he quickly begins to realise that the essence of “fighting children” is “fighting parents”. [© Far East Films]
