Film unavailable :-(
Sorry, this film is no longer available.
This epic examining the basis of the current Chinese political system is based upon a twelve-year-observation of people who arrived to Peking with complaints concerning their local governments. Most of them were put away to slums where they have, in their effort to achieve some justice, been existing in absolute poverty for up to several years.
