"*PLASTIC CHINA reflects the harsh reality of the nation{u2019}s economic development through the conditions of two families at a waste recycling facility, the great material, physical, and psychological price they pay, their aspirations toward wealth, and their complete disregard for individual quality of life.*" {u2013} ***Ai Weiwei***
