Touching story of perseverance and hope
16 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunately, it is also a story that repeats itself far too frequently in the rural and remote parts of China. For those who are not familiar with traditional Confucian teachings, they will find it difficult to believe how women are discriminated against but this is an accurate depiction of the real life, traditional teachings of thousands years are still strongly dominates the thinking of the older generation.
