A year in the making, legendary reporter Ted Koppel probes U.S. and China's complicated relationship with his signature insight and flair. Bonus features include an exclusive interview with Koppel, a 20-page viewer's guide, and exclusive extras that take the educational experience beyond the screen. In his in-depth documentary, Koppel examines China's new status as an economic superpower and it's complex relationship with the United States. He focuses on Chongqing - a city in Sichuan Province with a burgeoning population and big plans for the future. While peasants in outlying areas eke out a meager living, the rising middle class revels in new riches, challenging traditional ideas about religion, sexuality, and consumerism. All this reverberates here in America, where companies scramble for cheap labor, workers find jobs shipped overseas, and shoppers snap up Chinese-made goods at big box retailers. Interviews with captains of industry and assembly line workers - as well as peasant farmers, miners, artists, and students - paint a detailed picture of modern China unlike anything most viewers have ever seen. Along the way, the documentary provides surprising perspectives on a country fast becoming America's greatest economic rival and biggest business partner.
