This two part documentary tells the story of an epic 3 month road trip through China. Susan Morkel, a young South African woman, takes us through some of the most mysterious and fascinating regions in our modern world. While some have heard of The Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square and Chairman Mao, most people actually know very little about this huge country. This first 48 minute episode takes our valiant explorer from Pakistan over the Khunjerab Pass into Kashgar in western China, through the Taklimakan Desert and on to Beijing. Both episodes explore the remote outback of China to find stories that have never been told before. It also shows rural life and what people do there to sustain themselves. Focusing mainly on what people make with their hands, this film stays clear of the usual tourist spots. Going much further than the hazy horizon on dusty detours, this road movie will make you want to pack your bags and go there yourself.
