The Cultural Revolution was among the most catastrophic and least understood events of the 20th-century. Mao Zedong's call to "make revolution" was answered by millions of Chinese and one American, Sidney Rittenberg. An intimate of the Party's leadership, Rittenberg gained unprecedented power in the government. But he was twice betrayed, and served a total of 16 years in solitary confinement. This film is an uncompromising account of events all but removed from China's official history.
