    Under the Hawthorn Tree
    Yichang municipality, Hubei province, China, early 1970s. High - school student Jingqiu is one of many educated urban youth sent to the countryside to be ''re - educated'' under a dictate from Chairman Mao. Jing's father is a political prisoner somewhere in China, and her mother, a former teacher branded as a ''capitalist,'' is now reduced to menial work to support Jing and her two younger siblings. When Jing arrives with a group at Xiping village in the Yangtze River's Three Gorges region, she meets geology student Jianxin, nicknamed ''Old Three,'' who is the son of a high - ranking military officer, but whose mother committed suicide after being branded a ''rightist.'' Despite their disparate social backgrounds and a political atmosphere that forbids the relationship, Jingqiu and Jianxin fall desperately in love. But their budding romance is cut short by fate... A sensitive and searing love story, <i>Under the Hawthorn Tree</i> is sure to become an instant classic.
