Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Nimotuzumab with radiotherapy

Patients will receive neoadjuvant radiotherapy with concurrent anti-PD-1 antibody SHR-1210. Radiation of primary tumor and local lymph nodes with 95% planning target volume (PTV) of 40Gy/20f.

SHR-1210 200mg fixed dose every 2 weeks delivered concurrent with radiation therapy.

After 2-4 weeks of neoadjuvant treatment, patients will be evaluated by a multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) and esophagectomy will be given for patients with resectable disease.

Radiation: 3-DCRT or IMRT radiation
Radiation of primary tumor and local lymph nodes with 95% planning target volume (PTV) of 40 Gy/20f.

Drug: anti-PD-1 antibody SHR-1210
SHR-1210 (200mg fixed dose every 2 weeks for 2 cycles) will be administered as an intravenous infusion over 60 minutes.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pathologic Complete Response Rate [ Time Frame: 2-4 weeks after completion of radiotherapy ]
    the Percentage of Patients Who Have No Evidence of Cancer in Their Surgical Specimen Following Surgery

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Defined as the interval between the start date of treatment and the date of occurrence of progressive disease or death from any cause.

  2. Numbers of adverse events and the degree of each adverse events according to the NCI CTCAE 4.0 criteria. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    From the date of randomization to 6 months after esophagectomy. An expected average of 6 months
