Abstract This documentary provides a poignant look at modern China. Flower, Rascal, and their friends come from a remote village in the Chinese mountains and speak only Lahu. Now they must leave their idyllic home for boarding school in the city. During their first year at primary school, they're modeled into being good socialist workers. Can the girls make their way in modern China? And what price will they have to pay to succeed? Both girls work hard, and in the end they achieve high scores in their exams. They're prepared for their new lives, but they realize they can have success only on terms of the Chinese system. Beautifully filmed, Children of Blessing reveals how China assimilates its minorities.
