Kartik's rating of the film Railroad of Hope

Short and sweet. Even though it's a glimpse into rural Chinese dreams, the themes in their hopes and sufferings are universal. The humanism in the short exchanges gives you a deeper appreciation of the paths we take and the people we meet. (I could especially relate because these thoughts mirror those of millions of rural Indians that I've been meeting on trains my whole life.)
