When a desperate SOS letter penned by a political prisoner turns up in Halloween decorations sold in Oregon, it sparks a nail-biting chain of events that exposes appalling human rights violations and leads to sweeping labor reform in China.Written by
A very powerful story told delicately. I went to the premiere in New York and was totally amazed by every element of this documentary. The animation based on illustrations by Sun Yi himself is very convincing and touchiing.
I noticed that the reviews by New York Times and LA Times are also very positive. And the rate on Rotten Tomatoes is a surprising 100%.
