The characters are from China and their stories may not be happy or necessarily fulfilling ones but they vibrate with a meaning that is uplifting in an unusual kind of way. People striving, people, hoping, people on their way to somewhere. They may not get there but they have journeys that are courageous, hopeful and sometimes even silly. It is always a surprise when you realize that tales of those from thousands of miles away are tales of us as well. I have found in MY journeys that people are pretty much the same everywhere. It is the governments that suck.
