Dandan Fan is very much the modern Chinese woman.
A marketing professional, she’s diligent and prosperous — in many ways she’s a model Chinese citizen.
But Dandan is being watched 24 hours a day.
A vast network of 200 million CCTV cameras across China ensures there’s no dark corner in which to hide.
Every step she takes, every one of her actions big or small — even what she thinks — can be tracked and judged.
And Dandan says that’s fine with her.
What may sound like a dystopian vision of the future is already happening in China. And it’s making and breaking lives.

I was in China 1992 in a public park in a remote area in a heavily wooded area enjoying myself with a lovely lass over there as one does and the cops had telescopes perched on another hill. They demanded a written apology. They probably could not prove anything only suspect.
