Moongate and Yellow Earth

Forgotten 遗忘

‘The foreign devils will be entranced by our performance and line our path back to Shandong with gold and cherry blossoms…’

1917. Shandong Province, Northern China. Times are tough in Horse Shoe Village. Old Six and Second Moon struggle to earn enough to feed their young child. Big Dog struggles to overcome opium addiction and for Eunuch Lin, the fall of the Imperial Dynasty couldn’t have come at a worse time. Could a fierce war far away in Europe present an opportunity to put both themselves and their struggling nation on its feet?

遗忘 means ‘Forgotten’. ‘Left behind’. ‘Erased’.

Forgotten 遗忘 is inspired by the little-known story of the 140,000 Chinese Labour Corps who left everything and travelled half way around the world to work for Britain and the Allies behind the front lines during World War One.
