Synopsis 
Guanzhuang Village's Kong Fanhua will stop at nothing to maintain her position as village head. First she orders her husband back from his job in a coastal city to visibly support her in the upcoming elections. Then she visits the village's power brokers and young upstarts one-by-one so as to keep them under her control by fair means or foul. But when a villager goes missing - a woman who broke the family planning policy when she became pregnant with a third child - the chaos that ensues transforms the power dynamics in the village and creates the opportunity for a new candidate to emerge. Kong meets her greatest challenge yet in the form of Meng Xiaohong, the young woman whom Kong trained up and once considered her successor. Meng proves herself a worthy competitor by coming up with innovative solutions to the many complex issues facing the village. Adapted from Li Er's celebrated and controversial novel.
