China’s rapid economic development has left behind vast rural areas still fighting for basic survival needs. A local doctor’s personal quest to bring transformative healthcare to the remote villages of northwest China reveals an intimate portrait of an unobserved rural community. Restoring the Light explores how the doctor and two disabled families-including an inspired young woman, her brave grandmother and an optimistic young boy-retain hope and resilience in the face of enormous social and economic pressures that threaten to unravel their lives.
