Hong Kong. American journalist Paul and his Chinese girlfriend – face a crisis. A troubling letter arrives from mainland China from Christine’s long lost brother and they feel compelled to come to his rescue. There they find a village in turmoil and his brother’s life in disarray.
Their dangerous quest for justice begins set against a China beset by corrupt politicians, ruthless business interests where citizens, still in the long shadow of the Cultural Revolution have few rights in the face of an all-powerful system.
I’ve ended up in hell. Not of my own making. Not my fault. I must have lost my way. Th ere’s no other explanation. At some point in the maze of life, I took the wrong turn without noticing. Wasn’t paying attention, for once. Took the left instead of the right fork. Or the other way around. I saw no sign, nothing that could have been a warning to me. I simply walked on without stopping. Just like I’ve always done in my life. Onward. Always onward.
