Reporter Bob Woodruff explores the global transformation that has helped to define what many call "The Chinese Century" in this documentary that ponders just what it means for such an isolated nation to finally reach out to the rest of the world. For the past 300 years, China had virtually closed itself off to the rest of the world. At the dawn of the 21st Century, however, America was focusing on the global war on terror as China began making new friends with neighboring countries and former rivals. But how will China's rise affect the rest of the world? As massive new wealth lifts over 600 million people out of poverty in the past thirty years alone and resources are stretched thin, China's leaders come to the inevitable conclusion that isolation is no longer an option. Now, as the population of China surpasses 1.3 billion, the time has come for Chinese leaders to meet the evolving needs and desires of an increasingly complex and expectant society.
