“I’ve found a girl for you,” says an uncle to his nephew Luo Jiang. “She’s eleven and cannot walk.” He bought her for 1000 yuan (about 10 euro) so they can use her to beg in the streets. For his first feature film, Peng Tao readapted the novel Xue Chan by Bai Tianguang and spent weeks in the mountainous area of the province of Hubei to select non-professional actors. Compared to professional beggars, the children, in their fight for survival, are even lower on the social scale and the film is told from their point of view through a hand-held camera that often stays at their level.
