PlotAn adaptation of Mao Dun’s story, this film depicts poor silkworm farmers unwittingly caught up in competition with foreign industries during the early 1930s. In a village in Zhejiang province. The film, praised as one of the first successful leftist films, was shot in a documentary style. It also dramatizes  the impact political and economic change exerts on the lives of the poor.
