Blind Mountain

Synopsis: China, the 1990s. In villages where female babies are drowned, there are few young women to marry the men and bear more sons. Families buy wives - girls lured from the city. Bai finishes college and accepts a job in a remote mountain village harvesting herbs. It's a ruse: she's sold to a peasant family. She's indignant; the parents hold her so the son can rape her. She tries to run away; she's beaten. Other women kidnapped a few years before, now with children, tell her to comply. She continues to try to escape. She writes to her father, smuggling letters to the mailman. She obtains a bit of money. The village is without pity, except for the teacher. Can he help her? Anger mounts.

Watch carefully. Open your hand.


Two rooms. Our I.D.'s.

My back kills.

All this just for a few bucks.

I can't take much more either.

Hey! Hu!


How much money are we going to make?

At least five hundred.

If we're lucky, even nine hundred.

Really? Then I'll be able...

to pay back my family's debt.

Certainly. After a few trips.

Hu, I'm so lucky to have met you.

I couldn't find ajob even

after looking for a month.

My family spent tons

of money on my college,

But I still couldn't find ajob.

If I can make some money,

I'll have to thank you.

Forget it. After all, we're friends.

Don't be silly.

I like helping others. It's my way.

Why be selfish?

Bai Xuemei, listen up.

You got to be tough for this job.

It's not bad. Sounds like a fun way

to make a buck. Easy!

If the money is good,

I don't care how hard the work is.

That's good.

We found rare herbs for making medicine.

Let's see how well you'll do.

Manager Wu, don't worry.

She's got good people skills.

Just smile at them.

Those herb-picking

hicks will be all yours.

Then we'll get a top price.

You're the one who'll make them go crazy.

Oh, what a turn on!

Stop it!

Hey, not so hard.

Play somewhere else.

We're going to look

for the herb pickers.

Wait here. Keep an eye on our stuff.



Hello. Where's Manager Wu?

Who's that?

From the Chinese medicine company.

What company? Never heard of it.

Here's his business card.

Have you seen my wallet and I. D?

I swear, we didn't take your stuff.

Thanks. I'll go look for them.

Where are you going?


You can't leave.

What do you want?

Miss, I'll tell you.

Your family sold

you to be my son's wife.

That's impossible. They're not family.

They hired me to work for them.

You could be lying.

The fact is I bought you for 7,000.

Now you're my son's wife.

Mister, they really aren't my family.

They lied to you.

I'm going to the police.

You're not going anywhere!

This can't be happening!

Miss, all girls end up married.

You married my son,

so we'll treat you as family.

Are you out of your mind?

You can't go.

I beg you, let me go.

Grab her.

They are not my family.

I promise. Please, let me go.

Just ignore her. She'll tire of yelling.

What do you want?

Get out of here!


Drink or remain a bachelor!

Same for your son and grandson!

No women, ever!

Drink up or else no women

in your next life either!

A pack of cigarettes.

How was it?

How was what?

How'd it feel?


You know, in bed.

Real good.

You're full of it.

How do we know you really did it?

Because I did.

Oh yeah? Tell me, are her tits big?

Shut the f*** up!

I can tell he didn't do it.

I know you're a good person.

Please let me go.

Eat first.

If you let me go,

I'll thank you for the rest of my life.


I'll be good to you just

as long as you stay.

No way.

Then give the 7,000 back to me

and I'll let you go.

I'll write a letter to my father.

I'll ask him to send the money, okay?

You think I'm stupid?

Your father will bring the police.

I'll have wasted the money on you.

You know you could go tojail

for buying a wife?

F*** jail.

Everyone does it.

City people spend even more.

What are you doing here?

I can come if I want.

Not in bed with your wife?

You'd rather hang out with us?

What's it to you? I'll come if I want.

Your damn temper hasn't changed!

I bet she won't sleep with you.

If she won't sleep with you,

just beat her.

Is this girl faking

marriage to rip you off?

It doesn't seem like it.

Be careful. People are up

to no good these days.

Don't let her run away.
