SO LONG, MY SON

SO LONG MY SON traces the lives of two families over three decades of social, political and human upheaval in China. Following the loss of a child in a tragic accident, their paths separate. Destinies ebb and flow, and fortunes are transformed under the impact of a country's changing face. Yet even as their lives diverge, a common search for truth and reconciliation around the tragedy remains, but sometimes it can take a lifetime to say farewell. 

A deeply moving, generations-spanning drama exploring the long-term effect of China's one-child policy on a small circle of friends. Unraveling in a novelistic form, SO LONG MY SON chronicles these people who are affected by a society in full transformation - in which human relationships and the tumultuous evolution of a nation are inevitably and inextricably intertwined.
