Synopsis


“Can I ask you to do something for me?


Shut your eyes, just for a moment, and count on your fingers all the things you would be willing to die for.”


This is a personal response to the 1937 Nanjing Massacre, otherwise known as the Rape of Nanking.


British Chinese writer/performer Jude Christian tells a story about belonging anywhere and nowhere at once, and looks at how our lives are shaped by history.


In an explosive time for political discourse around the world, Nanjing asks: what does it mean to fight hatred and love one another?
