Storyline

During the decades long crackdown on Falun Gong practitioners in China which claimed thousands of victims, the lives of three women intertwine as they embark on a dangerous journey to find freedom. Armed with only a road map and a desire for justice, they must rely on their wits, courage and the compassion of strangers, to escape imprisonment and navigate a treacherous passageway out of communist China. Staying behind means certain death, but the road ahead holds no guarantees. How far will they go for freedom?

Phenomenal-a harrowing journey and an inspiring message
19 February 2018 | by ireneluoSee all my reviews

This was an extraordinary film that sheds light on a largely hidden story about the persecution of Falun Gong in China and the extremes that practitioners must go to to to escape. It's also a story of resilience and conviction in the face of enormous pressure as well as the kindness of strangers along the way.

I myself have met with quite a few Falun Gong practitioners who fled to Thailand or Malaysia and who were resettled in New York City and Philadelphia, where I've lived. It's extraordinary to think of how these kind and humble people endured similar experiences, which remain far beyond my comprehension, just because they wanted to believe in the beautiful principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance.
