"The whole world fears Fujian!" announces a TV pundit, commenting on the notoriety of China's southeastern province as the country's center for illegal emigration and human trafficking. Made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters very much like themselves, Robin Weng's pin-sharp feature debut reveals why and how so many young Chinese pay to have themselves smuggled in containers to the West.
