Mountains May Depart

Mountains May Depart

On the cusp of the capitalist explosion in China in 1999, Shen Tao has two suitors: Zhang, an aspiring entrepreneur, and his best friend Liangzi, who works in a coal mine. Shen Tao chooses Zhang – a man with a future. 15 years later, she is estranged from her son. An intensely moving study of how China’s economic boom – and the culture of materialism it has spawned – has affected the bonds of family, tradition, and love.
