Jean Pasqualini was the child of a Corsican Frenchman and a Chinese mother, living in China. When the communist regime tightened its controls over Chinese society in 1957, Pasqualini was sentenced to 12 years of "re-education" as a "counterrevolutionary." In 1964, he was expelled from the country before finishing his sentence and was forced to leave his wife and family behind. This film is based on Pasqualini's book about his harrowing experiences.
