The Three Gorges Dam will bring huge economic benefits to areas of central China, but Grandma Pang, an 87-year-old villager who is to be relocated to avoid rising waters from the construction project, is not so sure the changes are all for the good. She has lived all her life in one village and will be forced to leave many possessions and special places behind. Filmed over three years, this program chronicles Grandma Pang's traditional lifestyle, her emotional departure from the past, and the difficulties encountered in her new home as she and are family are moved to a "model town" to make way for the Three Gorges dam.
