Storyline

Women's roles and consumerism in a Chinese village. The independent Ermo supports her son and disabled husband, rising early to make noodles she sells as a street vendor. A snooty neighbor has a TV, so Ermo wants a huge one. The neighbor's husband, Blindman, offers her transport to sell baskets she's made. After he gets her a city job making restaurant noodles and more money, their relationship becomes an affair. She's also selling her blood. When she discovers Blindman is subsidizing her pay, she throws the money at him and quits the job; he covers their affair and her reputation by getting beaten up over a woman in the city. When she has enough for the TV, she's exhausted. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Touching story that really happened in China
1 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

As a matter of fact, it happened quite frequently in China. This is the struggle of common people who were near the bottom of the society, without wealth or status. They do not desire much, a television set would be very satisfactory and they work diligently to accomplish their goals, and eventually success in the little progress made in improving their lives.
