Shengde recounts his own story--from childhood in Chengdu during the Cultural Revolution, to life in exile in the United States, where he continues to fight for individual freedom and human rights in China.
"FREEDOM FIGHTER vividly conveys the excitement, commitment and idealism of young people swept up in a grass-roots movement to achieve political change in China in 1989. "
