Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A tragic love story set against the backdrop of the Cultural Revolution, now a major film from the director of House of Flying Daggers.

Jingqiu, an innocent young woman from a politically questionable family in the city, is selected as one of a small group of students to be sent to the countryside to work on a project that will further the Cultural Revolution. Clever, curious and eager, she tries to fit in with her hosts and the rural way of life, and it isn't appropriate for her to fall in love. But she does, with the son of a mighty army general. This beautiful, simple story of love against the odds will break your heart.
