Summary
They aren't chosen by popular election, but when the 3,000 members of the National People's Congress gather in Beijing, they do the nation's business within their ascribed political parameters. Does this mean that the average citizen has a voice in government? Are China's top leaders influenced by these locally appointed representatives, or is power so centralized that over 1.35 billion people can still be ruled as a whole, from behind closed doors? This film presents stories and discussions about China's one-party system, how an individual NPC appointee participates in it, and what alternative forms of political expression are possible. Viewers meet Dilina'er Abudulah, a delegate from the Xinjiang autonomous region who represents the Uyghur ethnic minority. Her thoughts and daily activities are presented alongside commentary from scholars, everyday citizens, and government supporters, including Xie Chuntao, author of How and Why the CPC Works in China.
