As traditional communities are bulldozed to make way for modern high-rise apartment buildings and ancient traditions are cast aside at the expense of approximately one million poor laborers from villages who barely get paid, the film asks how far will China go to sacrifice its traditional way of life for this new Western version?"--Container

East goes West - Ein Leben zwischen zwei Welten Es ist kein einfacher Start ins Leben: Gleich nach der Geburt geben die Eltern, glühende Anhänger Maos, ihre Tochter in die Obhut eines kinderlosen Bauernpaares in den Bergen. Zwei Jahre später bringen diese die halbverhungerte Kleine zu ihren des Lesens und Schreibens unkundigen Großeltern. Ein Jahr später stirbt der Große Vorsitzende, und in China beginnt ein dramatischer gesellschaftlicher Wandel. In ihrem neuen Buch erzählt die chinesische Autorin und Filmemacherin Xiaolu Guo von dem langen Weg, der sie aus einem ärmlichen Fischernest am Ostchinesischen Meer an die Filmhochschule im sich rasant verändernden Peking der 90er Jahre und schließlich 2002 nach London führt. 15 Jahre später beschreibt sie ihre Reise von Ost nach West mit einer Klarsicht, die nur jemand besitzt, der angekommen ist und sich zugleich fremd fühlt.
