Do Not Say We Have Nothing spans multiple generations following a close group of friends and family whose experiences are intertwined through the progression and eventual fallout of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. It celebrates the complexities of classical music, explores nuances of friendship, love, and tragedy, plays with time and language, and dabbles in magical realism. A modern epic. Truly breathtaking.
