A mid-level policeman and his wife are trapped in their home during a massive sandstorm in China.
The wife is running out of life-sustaining medicine, their food and water are almost gone, and their daughter is missing in the storm.
In this isolation and confinement, the policeman painfully reflects on his part in the persecution of innocent Chinese citizens who follow the Falun Gong spiritual practice, particularly one woman who he had been trying to force to renounce her belief. Refusing to submit, this woman is eventually tortured to death as he watches, severely shaking his soul.
As the policeman’s conscience emerges, the actual storm outside is nothing like what he has to face within himself. When all hope seems lost in the storm, the policeman is visited in a dream by an apparition who guides him toward deeper truths and the
inextinguishable light of hope.
