Synopsis >

Two years short of 70, Zhang Guosheng is planning to live out his days at this village care home in central China. But in a new scheme to deal with rural China's huge ageing population, he is in fact not yet the cared-for, but still the carer. His charge, 81-year-old Zhang Shouzhi, is near-deaf, immobile, and has no family in the village to care for him. And he's far too poor to afford professional care.
