"Are we ever going to be heard?"

Anonymous wants to explore the the role of women in war. The story follows a Chinese woman’s life during war time, as she was captured and tortured during the horrific Nanjing Massacre in the 1930s, and was wrongly accused by the Chinese government during the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s. Her sacrifices remained unacknowledged even after the nation began to thrive in the 1970s. She eventually left the country in search for value of life free of the burden of national love. Inspired by the theme “regeneration”, Anonymous wants to acknowledge those who sacrificed themselves for their country's regeneration.
