Chaoyanggou Village;朝阳沟

The clip is taken from a revival of Chaoyanggou Village, a play depicting the contemporary life which premiered in 1958 during the famous political campaign The Great Leap Forward. The story tells how Wang Yinhuan, a young urban girl and a graduate-of -high-school, overcomes various difficulties including her family’s objection, and finally settles down in her boyfriend’s home Chaoyanggou, a rather poor and remoted village.

The clip shows that Yinhuan’s mother, who is strongly against her daughter’s romance, comes to the village attempting to get her daughter back to the city.
