Coming to Global Voices: Last Train Home

Clip: Season 7 Episode 18 | 29s

Every spring, millions of migrant factory workers in China attempt to return to their rural home villages by train. It is an epic spectacle that tells us much about China, a country discarding traditional ways as it hurtles towards modernity and global economic dominance. Last Train Home draws us into the fractured lives of a single migrant family caught up in this desperate annual migration.
