Blind Mountain

Seen 26 January 2009

A girl sold off to be the wife of a farmer in the northern rural area of China tries her best to escape from her fate. A gripping tale of modern day white slavery, a common phenomenon it seems in many parts of China.

The girl’s efforts to run away were thwarted many times. There were so many obstacles in trying to gain her freedom again, even at the last moment when the police managed to be present at the village. The village itself seems like a fiefdom unto itself. There is very little hope of getting away from its clutches.

A damning reality of what people can do when they think they are in the right.
