Very touching!
15 September 2018 | by freeofspiritSee all my reviews

I just watched this documentary this afternoon in Pasadena. Very touching! đź‘Ź I highly recommend it to everyone. When he was long time tortured, he kept encouraging himself: I am still breathing, so why I give in? He defend his belief to traditional values with his life. Salute to hero Sun Yi, his family and all anonymous contributors.
