In his first film since the acclaimed and equally devastating Blind Shaft, Director Li Yang proves to be a master of cinematic tension as he turns from corruption of China's illegal mining from his previous film, to the even more horrifying illegal trade in women. Bax Xuemei is young college graduate who yearns for a life as budding urban capitalist but ends up drugged and sold as the "bride" of rural brute.
