The Donor

In a rundown part of a city in China, a man named Yang Ba (Ni Dahong) struggles to support his family. He runs a tiny shop where he repairs mopeds, often getting paid in food rather than money, much to the annoyance of his wife, Hua. They have a teenage son, Bao, who's about to take his all-important college exams. Getting into a top college is his only chance to find a much more prestigious job than his father's, perhaps working at one of the big state-run firms, but that will take money Yang doesn't have.

Yang on his knees, begging Li to spare him a terrible decision. It doesn't work.
