Synopsis In The Boat to Redemption disgraced Secretary Ku has been banished from the Party - it has been officially proved that he does not have a fish-shaped birthmark on his buttom and is therefore not the son of a revolutionary martyr, but the issue of a river pirate and a prostitute. He and his son, Dongliang, make a new life among the boat people where they meet Huixian. Soon Dongliang is obsessed with her and takes on Life, Fate and the Party in the only way he knows.
