About China


This film follows the fortunes of two of these farm boys, their hopes and their fears, and the teacher who guides them on their course for the ocean – in a school marooned in the middle of a wheatfield, five hundred miles from the coast. One is just starting out, and is confronted with the reality of a life at sea; the other is about to graduate, and, if successful, set sail for the first time. For both, it’s a gamble: this could be their only chance to leave the relative poverty of rural China – and see the world
