Last Train Home

In Last Train Home, the effects of globalization come to life through the story of one Chinese family. Distanced from their children by factory jobs far from home, Qin’s parents return to their home once a year on Chinese New Year, along with 130 million other migrant workers. This emotional account documents a daughter’s struggle to cope with her parent’s physical and emotional absence—and her parents’ heroic effort to hold the family together across great distances.
