Screenplay about a single mother who takes on the Chinese government to rescue a nation lost after the Second World War. How can a young woman from an oppressed minority be an ‘enemy of the state’? The wealthiest woman of China? A People’s Representative? A human rights defender nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?

This is the remarkable story of Rebiya Kadeer, her homeland East Turkestan and a struggle against persecution, torture and even murder. “I want to be the mother of all Uyghurs, the medicine for their ills, the cloth with which they dry their tears and the cloak to protect them from the rain.” Available from the author.
