Synopsis

Young student Bai Xuemei is cheated and sold as a “wife” by human traffickers to a remote village. Raped and beaten, she leads the life of a sex slave and child-bearer with no hope of escape because of the villagers’ apathy and selfishness.

Our take

Following our Chinese independent documentary series comes this similarly politically impassioned reckoning with human trafficking in modern China. While not an easy watch, Li Yang’s film is a necessary, nuanced expression of dissent against the powers that be, guided by a remarkably humanist lens.
