    Chinese pianist Zhu Xiao-Mei experienced the excesses of Mao's regime and the Cultural Revolution. Playing Bach's music on her piano helped her to cope. Zhu Xiao-Mei is returning to China for the first time in 35 years. Her tour through China playing Bach's Goldberg Variations is a triumph, but memories and encounters also make it a moving emotional journey.
