Summary
In early Maoist China, twelve-year-old Ah Liam reports his grandmother to the authorities for taking a hammer to a framed portrait of Chairman Mao, believing he is doing the right thing by proving his loyalty to the Party. Suddenly the family must flee their home on Drum Wave Islet, which sits just a few hundred meters across the channel from mainland China. But when the mother tries to procure visas for safe passage to Hong Kong, the government will only issue the visas on the condition that one child is left behind as proof of the family's intention to return to China
