As a leader of the pro-democracy movement. Shen Tong was on Beijing's Avenue of Eternal Peace (now known as "Blood Row") during the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989. His life was saved by members of his family who pulled him away and took him to a hideaway. He escaped from China one week later and came to the United States.
"Almost a Revolution" is a remarkable behind-the-scenes account of the fateful days when Chinese students courageously demanded that their cries for reform be heard. It is also the story of Shen Tong's life, which reflects the shifting social and political climate in China over the past decade.
