Synopsis

This collection of contemporary Chinese literature features three short novellas from celebrated Shanghai writer Zhu Xiaolin.In Normandy Rainbow, a mother and daughter find that the path is crooked and often full of temptations that lead them to take detours. One will find her way back, but what will happen to the other? What good can come out of evil? In Auschwitz Wall of Death, a young Chinese journalist is determined to visit the notorious death camp so she can bear witness to the atrocities committed there, but each encounter with a survivor opens her eyes to the indestructible human spirit. Sometimes the power of hope and the depths of despair drives us to act in ways that takes us far away from home. In Platinum Passport, a married couple's pursuit of happiness abroad in America does not go as planned and they must rely on the kindness of strangers on both sides of the Pacific.
