Facing persecution by the Chinese communist regime for their faith, Eric and his mother manage to escape to Australia by joining a tour group to the country. However, Eric’s father is not so fortunate. He is locked up in China’s notorious prison system, where he is brutally tortured and abused in solitary confinement.
His only ‘crime’ being his faith in Falun Gong – an ancient Chinese spiritual discipline consisting of moral teachings and gentle health exercises including meditation. The news that Australia’s Prime Minister will visit China, offers Eric hope, and he pleads for government intervention in his father’s case. After 15 years apart, will they finally reunite?
