Abstract:

Every year in China the same dramatic ritual takes place: In the factory towns of the south, millions of migrant factory workers fight for space on overcrowded trains, trying to return home for the Chinese New Year. The Zhangs have lived this way for twenty years. They barely know their own children, who are being raised by relatives back home. This year, the tenous family model has broken and they travel with additional purpose: they must bring home their runaway teenage daughter, so that she can return to school and not have to spend the rest of her life in a factory.
