Based on the best-selling nonfiction book, this moving drama explores the difficulties faced by oppressed Chinese peasants through the generations. A series of folktale-style stories tell of government neglect: from a coffin remaining unburied for 13 years to an important meeting continually postponed for more than three decades and the plight of citizens with no control over their lives. Pointed commentary sheds light on these harsh inequities.
