Description

Guo Sheng now lives in a New Zealand city, but during China's Cultural Revolution her family were persecuted by the Red Guards and subjected to unspeakable violence. In her story brutal beatings and public humiliations become a daily occurrence. Their property was destroyed and her grandfather shot and killed. Meanwhile Guo herself was in love with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks: he and his family were Red Guard sympathisers. Her family was horrified. A decade later the couple met up again, but times have changed. Later, with her family suffering on-going persecution, Guo Sheng pursued her education and career, met a New Zealand couple and later left her homeland for a foreign country - New Zealand.
