REVOLUTION IS NOT A DINNER PARTY

This is a powerful story of a girl who comes of age and fights to survive during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1969). Nine-year-old Ling leads a happy life with her parents, who are both dedicated doctors. Her world gradually starts to disintegrate when Comrade Li, one of Mao's political officers, moves into their apartment. In an atmosphere of increasing mistrust, Ling fears for the safety of her neighbours, and soon for herself and her parents. Over the course of four years, and despite witnessing many horrors, Ling not only survives, but manages to bloom as well.
