A Tale of Two Migrants

After laboring abroad, coming home with all or nothing – Zhang Zizhu, translated by Sam Hall

Wu Wei and Lin Tong are from the same town in Fujian Province, and were also high school classmates. Both were born in the 60s and both journeyed across the seas in the 90s to find work. Now, after 30 years, they have returned home from overseas – Wu Wei sitting on 20 million yuan, and Lin Tong empty handed.
