Insights into Chinese society abound in this documentary, which shows the lives of women who work unloading freight trains at Wuchang Station, Hubei Province, China. The camera focuses on a newly-wed couple, radiant with optimism, and contrasts the tested marriage of Wang Wen Chin in all its wistfulness. The pace of the film reflects the serenity of its subjects and the conspicuous absence of Western-style stress.
