Xiu Xiu


Xiu Xiu is one of the many Chinese youths ''sent down'' to the country from her city home. She is supposed to spend six months learning horse herding and then return with honours.
The real trouble, however, begins after her allotted six months are up, and she begins anticipating her return to "civilization"-- only to find she's literally been forgotten. While learning to manage horses from a solitary weirdo, she is sexually abused by a caravan of men claiming to be government officials and promising her the necessary papers to get home.
