What is the biggest annual movement of people every year? It is the annual mass migration each Chinese New year, as three million people, many migrant workers go home to their families, often the only time they see them.
This film shows the effect of all this on one family, where the parents return hoem, to their son and daughter who are being brought up in the countryside by their grandmother.
Moving, tragic and informative, this is an excellent documentary, about the ever changing economic face of China.
