"Scented Apricot Flowers" spans generations of love that has been lost and found through tribulations.
In remote parts of China, bride price and borrowing seeds are considered the norm. The custom gives families a new lease on life, but more often than not, the custom leads to many tragedies of forbidden love.

The Hell and the World is about a little girl named Chun who sees her parents murdered, and for the next four years lives in the wilderness with her two dogs. This amazing story plays out from 1966 to 1996 in the suburbs of Beijing, China.
After the Cultural Revolution, Chun is adopted by Peng’s family. A former Red Guard, Peng was sentenced to death for several crimes, including having killed 21 family members. Peng’s son leaves home with Peng’s diary and Chun follows, to bring him home. But she is captured and sold by human slavers. Chun suffers through hardship and bitterness until she is rescued.
After reading Peng’s diary, Chun at last understands why Peng and his followers became so cruel and lawless.
