Synopsis

The Xinjiang Province in China is one of the worst places in the world when it comes to human rights abuse. The Muslim Uyghurs are systematically oppressed. At least 10, 000 have been imprisoned, suspected of separatism, and hundreds have been executed. This film follows four children at a government orphanage who are learning the ancient Uyghur tradition of Dawaz, tightrope walking.
