Drama set in the 1950s, based on a true story, about a young girl, Sung Neng Yee, who is brought as part of a wealthy Chinese family. She is eager to become part of Mao Tze Tung's "new society", but soon becomes disenchanted by the economic misery the changes bring to her family. Before long, the authorities become aware of Neng Yee's feelings and she is taken to a labour camp, overseen by the sadistic Colonel Cheng.Written by

China cry is a movie of course based on the life of a Christian Chinese women (Neng yee, aka Nora Lam) whom is suffering at the hands of the Chinese government. After seeing China cry I was compelled to read the book. To tell you the truth they cut out so much information in the original story, that when they made this movie they lost important parts of Neng yee's life that should have been shared. That is a tad disappointing. Now I realize that in order for China cry to have fit in a proper running time it had to be chopped. But the movie would have been much more enjoyable if they would have mentioned a little more of her childhood and her life after going to Hong Kong (she moved to America and went on crusading throughout America and China -among other things-).
