    • A non fiction essay which, through the letters of Frances Wilkinson, an English woman who lived in China in the unsettled 40s and 50s, takes us on a journey to today’s China, comparing the letters’ point of view with that of the documentary-maker. A game of contrasts video-diary style involving the intimate reading of the letters by Frances’ granddaughter.
