A Chinese film unlike any you've seen, this true-life story enacted by real-life participants is not a documentary in the traditional sense. Actor Jia Hongsheng (who rose to stardom in China, succumbed to heroin addiction and alienated his family with erratic, schizoid behavior) re-creates this harrowing period in his life. His recovery is as compelling as his collapse, and his family's efforts to support his return to health are deeply moving.
