When another girl is born to Chu Ju's mother, it is quickly determined that the baby must be sent away.
Chinese law states that a family may have only two children, and tradition dictates that every family should have a boy.
Fourteen-year-old Chu Ju knows she cannot allow her sister to be sent to an orphanage and so she sets out in the middle of the night, vowing never to return.
