Cid Medeiros's rating of the film Railroad of Hope

The subjects of this documentary is the Chinese peasants. It's like going inside of an island that has been isolated from the rest of the world since the 1800's. Two opposite concerns come up. The first one is their pure feelings which makes them capable of enjoying simple dreams. The second one is their naivety which takes them to slavery work. Oh sorry, it's not slavery. You got paid if you work REAL hard.
