Stand Up is based on the true story of Song Xue-Wen, who plays himself in the film.

In Jilin, a large industrial city in northern China, Song Xue-Wen, a young industrial worker, becomes the inadvertent victim of a radioactive accident at his company. He undergoes seven major operations in which both legs are amputated at the hip, and his left hand is amputated at the wrist. He also loses functionality of all five fingers of his right hand. A subsequent addiction to pain-killing morphine forces him to undergo drug rehabilitation three times.

The local company Song worked for refuses to give him proper compensation for his crippling losses or to even pay for prosthetic limbs with which he might some day achieve his dream of standing up. Experiencing the lowest point of his life, he meets a beautiful, caring young school teacher, named Yang Gang. Song and Yang decide to go to the company's headquarters in Beijing to seek justice and compensation. Life in the big city is hard for the young couple, but through it they find love and happiness, and what it means to stand up.

Stand Up was selected by the Atlanta Film Festival and the Rhode Island International Film Festival in 2009.
