A young woman...seeking a better life in rural Mainland China, must take a job as a Country Teacher where without tax income, education funding is not guaranteed, nor is the pay. At a time, not so long ago, when government sponsored Chinese higher education and the State University Admissions exams were the best hope for rural area boys and girls to overcome poverty, she must learn with her three colleagues, the hope for only one endorsement...the struggle to become a Certified Teacher, a federal government employee with guaranteed salary, a pension and even medical benefits. Here then is the sensitive story of life in a country village, for its children and elders, and their relationship with the country as a whole...a seductive tale that leads you into thinking you're about to watch a situation in Chinese education created by poverty, only to wind up understanding the universal nature of the problems and ideals that educators face all over the world.
