Documentary portraying the devastating personal toll paid by China's 150 million-plus rural migrant workers who are forced by economic circumstance to go away to work in far-flung cities.
Separated from their rural homeland and their families, the workers crowd onto the homeward-bound train once a year at Chinese New Year to pay their children an annual visit.
This film focuses on the Zhang family. Having left their two children behind to go and work in a cheap clothing factory in the big industrial city of Guangzhou, Chen Suqin and her husband Zhang Changhua have seen them just once a year over the 16 years since they were born.
