第一集  莲王来世间

无锡市。1966年。中国大地面临那“史无前例” 的 “文化大革命”。

军工厂﹔荷枪实弹的门卫。年轻的女工程师走进办公室。关上门。“我又怀孕了。” “革命工作需要你。你没有时间。” 女工程师走出门﹐满脸是泪。但很快擦干了泪﹐满脸露出严肃的表情。

无锡市﹐青山湾﹐惠泉山下﹐无锡第四人民医院。1966年。晚夏。

女工程师从医院的台阶上一步步的走下来﹐满面愁容。

突然﹐一位五十上下的农村妇女﹐慌慌张张的从马路上跑来﹐身后跟着一位三十左右的年轻男子。见到女子﹐那农妇腿发软﹐一脸苍白﹐用颤抖的声音问道﹕“做完了﹖”

“真倒霉。医生说我有单状泡疹。今天不让我做流产。”女子抱怨道。

“谢天谢地﹐菩萨保佑﹗”农妇眉开眼笑。

农妇虔诚地在观音像前点香。

1967年新年﹐年初六。大雪。晨。女子呻吟声。三轮车在雪中。无锡市第四人民医院。婴儿清脆的哭声。

农妇满脸欢喜的将婴儿抱在怀中。

聚焦﹕婴儿的小脸蛋。

画外音﹕“我的母亲为了做共产邪党的积极分子﹐想做流产手术。单状泡疹病毒将我保了下来。这一定与我那信佛的农村外婆‘搞迷信活动’有关。”

画外音﹕“我来到人世间﹐随我而来的是那灭绝中华五千年传统文化的浩劫。我那天真的母亲和父亲却将他们的命运与那邪党的命运紧紧的绑在一起。他们举起那拳头﹐对着那血旗﹐发了毒誓。”

画面上﹕年轻男女在血旗前发毒誓。

年轻的男子话外音﹕“我的女儿出生在红彤彤的文化大革命﹐就叫她彤文吧。”
年轻的女子画外音﹕“我的女儿会美得似那天上的彩霞﹐愿她的文彩和她一样的辉煌。”

童声的歌﹕

我是天上的莲
来到红尘间
为亿万年的思念
为亿万年的等待
为圆史前的缘
为了史前的愿
将刻骨铭心的爱
化作满天的彩霞
将人间的苦难
花作万紫千红的莲
万紫千红的莲
 
 
 
第二集 神啊请给我一个好太太
 
 
美国纽约布瑞安
从小顽皮不爱哭
父亲送个饼干盒
上面印个美人图
看过就做中国梦
有空就爱练功夫
拳打脚踢翻跟斗
汗流浃背不怕苦
惹事生非是常事
搞得父母无门路
一日带回美女子
欢欢喜喜做丈夫
谁知好景不长久
爱情之酒变成醋
万念俱空想自毁
突发奇想去中土
万水千山游子归
麻辣之乡是成都
千年梦醒回故里
生命之舟开新途
冥冥之中有安排
天上人间奇缘布
来春再返纽约时
神已送来新媳妇
法轮飞旋莲花开
浪子回头要得度
邪魔妒嫉使恶招
谎言离间欲下毒
人间情短是痴迷
考验面前入迷雾
望君坚定修炼路
冲破迷雾得真福
慈悲救度是真愿
时时刻刻暗相助
真金不怕火来炼
真心金刚莲台铸
Kungfu Chinese 
Second Episode: Chinese Wife Sent from God   
An African American, Tony, was walking on the street of Brooklyn. It was the end of the Fall, with winds sweeping the fallen leaves. His face was covered with anxiety. A piece of newspaper was blown under his feet. He picked it up. It says, “Falun Dafa Information Center”. He read for a moment and said to himself, “Chinese Kungfu. Sounds very cool; my buddy Brian will like this.” He carefully folded the newspaper into pocket size and then put into his jean pocket.  He walked into a store front, which says, “Sign World Inc.” Inside, there were workers producing different types of Signs, such as awnings, channel lettering and vinyl signs. A young man was talking loudly with several men about his trip to China. “I had the best time of my life there. I wish to go back there as soon as I save myself 50,000 dollars. I will spend the rest of my life there.” “We will all follow you there, Brian.” His co-workers were apparently enchanted by his description about the city called Chengdu,in Sichuan Province.  Tony gave Brian a touch of fists, as their gesture of friendship. Then he said, “I have something to show you.” He took out the newspaper and handed it to him, “Falun Dafa, a type of Chinese Kungfu. I thought you might be interested in this type of stuff.” Brian took the newspaper and immediately started to read it. His face started to brighten up. He said, “I need to find out where these people are. Oh, here is a website. I will ask my son little Bryanto find a number to call.”  When evening came, Brian closed the doors of the Sign World Inc. He climbed into his big white van and started to drive out from Brooklyn, entering Manhattan and then finally got onto the highway towards Long Island. The sunset looks very pretty that day, when he looked through the front windows of his big white van. He is a man in his late thirties, wearing a blue T-shirt and a wore-out jean. His hands were covered with different small cuts. His arms are very strong because of many years of daily hand work on the signs. His heart, however, was getting weaker and heavier every day, with wounds much deeper than the ones on his hands.  The big white van made a final turn into the drive way of a white residential house, across the street of the Nathan’s on the Long Beach Road,at the town of Oceanside. Across the street of the house, there is a Chinese Restaurant, a small take out place with a sign “May King Chinese Restaurant”. Brian opened the door of the house and walked straight into his bedroom, which is a one at the end of the hallway, passing one other bedroom where his brother David lives, and the master bedroom, where his mother Mirriam lives. The bedroom is very small but organized. At the center of the room was his Queen Size bed. At the foot of the bed was his 18-inch Television. Next to it was his closet which was totally packed with his stacks of T shirts and jeans and other small items that he has been collecting, such as a Chinese-English dictionary, many Kungfu movies. Next to his bed was an exercise machine and a small study desk, on which was a desk top computer.  He took out his cell phone. A child’s voice was on the phone, “Hi, Dad.” Brian answered, “Hey, little Bryan. What are you doing?” “Nothing” “Where are your brothers?” “They went out with Mom” “Are you alone at home?” “Yes” “Do you want to come to grandma’s house tonight?” “Sure, Dad” “I am coming to pick you up.” “OK, I will wait for you.”  Brian hopped into his big white van again, and drove out the drive way. Five minutes later, he parked in front of a light-blue house. A young boy was already standing in front of the house. He ran towards the van, opened the front door, and took the seat next to Brian, fastened his seat belt. He is about thirteen years old, with a timid look. His hair looks quite long, with a layer coming down from the front to cover his eyes. He looked pale and nervous. Brian said, “What is up, little Bryan?” “Nothing” Both of them stopped talking and the van drove out from the drive way, heading back to the grandma’s house in front of the Nathan’s.  When both of then entered the bedroom, Brian took out the newspaper and handed it to little Bryan, “Can you help me to find out where can I find these people?” He pointed at the article where there is a website. “Sure, Dad” Little Bryan was happy that he was given a task and immediately went to the computer. Soon he found something. “Dad, look like there is a group of people here in Hempsted; also there is a number for the group in Flushing, Queens.” Brian said, “Can you take down the phone numbers so that I can call.” “OK, Dad”  The next morning, Brian got up with little Bryan. They heard a knock at the door. Brian opened the door and two little boys walked in. Their mother, Margaret, a middle-aged woman was standing next to them, but did not enter the door. “Today is Saturday. I have something to take care of. Can you watch the kids?” She said. Brian did not look at her and the kids jumped inside. The older one was about ten years old, while the younger one looked a lot younger than his real age, about eight years old. They appeared very happy to see Brian. Brian walked inside the bedroom again, with all three children. He turned on the television for the kids and walked out from the bedroom into the back porch, where he lit up his cigarette. Looking into the sky, with smoke puffing out from his mouth, his face looked cloudier than the sky. His mind had a flash back of what has been happening to him in the past five years of the family crisis. Margaret was his love-at-the-first-site sweet heart. She was such a beautiful woman and meant the whole world to him. Every night he held her in his strong arms to fall asleep. Life was sweet and appeared to be smooth and happy like a song. However, one day everything changed. He found out that she was dating a Spanish man behind him. When he saw the two of them sitting together, and Margaret was smiling at the man with such a splendid smile that he thought to only belong to him, forever, his heart was filled with fire. The fire started to lit himself up and was ready to burn down all the sweet dreams that he and Margaret weaved together with their love. He became a violent man. The world is filled with bitterness. He left Margaret and his new business in Florida. He did not want to see anyone. He found no interest in his sign work, which he had been taking great proud of. He escaped back to the living room of his Mother Miriam’s home, first slept on the coach in the living room. Then he moved into his childhood bedroom and started to hide in there. He tried to rescue the family by going to the church with Margaret. But soon he realized that everything would no longer be the same. He started to take anti-depressant when he realized that he was constantly thinking about death. The drug made him sleepy and no longer able to think about anything. But the pain in the heart was there as soon as he woke up. Life became such a burden and a torturing machine. His ship was hitting a rock and he sensed that an end is coming near. One day, when he was feeling so desperate that he wished to end his life, he felt at the depth of his heart there was still something that he wish to complete: a good Chinese meal, his favorite Chinese food: hot and spicy Sichuan Cuisine. He quickly climbed out from the bed and surfed on the internet for a city in China in Sichuan Province. He soon found himself on the phone to book his airplane ticket. Then he found himself packing a suitcase, and taking a cab to the JFK airport. When he came off from the air plane, he found himself standing in the middle of such a crowd of people, with black hair, brown eyes and yellow skin, speaking a language that he felt so familiar but could not understand a word.
