Paul Henreid narrates this one-hour documentary about Peking, China in the days before the communist takeover. As all Italian roads lead to Rome, so do all roads in China lead to Peking. Here, peasants train pigeons to steal rice from the royal grain reserve to avoid starvation, and stories of the royal family are peppered with juicy gossip about the sex life of the Dowager Empress and other tales of the Forbidden City.
