The Children of the Yellow River recounts 17 years of contemporary Chinese history (from 2001 to the present): Qiao has an affair with Bin, a crime boss in a small mining town in the north of the country. To save her partner’s life, the woman goes to prison for five years. When she gets out, he’s forgotten about her and moved south, to the region of the Three Gorges Dam. The years pass and the two, inextricably linked, end up finding each other right there where it all began. But time, life and destiny have treated them very differently. The Children of the Yellow River is a work on the loss of a generation that in the last 20 years has gone through brutal, continuous transformations, as difficult to understand as they are easy to see, precisely because they can be seen in the wounds of the Chinese landscape itself.
