Nowhere to Call Home: A Tibetan in Beijing

.

Widowed at 28, Tibetan farmer Zanta defies her tyrannical father-in-law and refuses to marry his only surviving son, who is in prison for armed robbery. When Zanta’s in-laws won’t let her seven-year-old go to school, she flees to Beijing to become a street vendor.
Destitute, she inveigles a foreign customer into helping pay her boy’s school fees. Soon the unwitting American journalist faces a tough decision: does she step into the violent family dispute, or watch as Zanta suffers the traditional fate of Tibetan widows.
