This long-form documentary in three acts begins in 1996 and ends with the Beijing Olympics in 2008. The first act depicts the difficulties facing petitioners at the Beijing South Railway Station Petition Office and the contradictory nature of the petition system; the second act focuses on a mother and daughter as they undertake the petition process from 1996 to 2008, illustrating how the system brings suffering and tragedy to their lives; and the third act follows petitioners living near the Beijing South Railway Station as they face forced eviction and the demolition of their homes to ensure smooth operations of the Olympic Games.
