Documentary filmed over a decade, following Chinese workers fighting against injustices suffered in their home districts. Director Zhao Liang provides an insight into the lives of individuals who have suffered dismissals, land confiscations, beatings and arrests as they seek redress in the court of plaintiffs in Beijing Thousands of poor Chinese workers wait years to petition against injustices suffered in their home districts with the court of the plaintiffs in Beijing - often the last resort for those seeking redress for dismissals, land confiscations, beatings and arrests. Filmed over a decade, director Zhao Liang gives an insight into the shared disenchantment of those who search for justice from a system that pays little to no significance to their individual suffering.
