Ou Dede and His Daughters takes the viewer to a China few have seen before - centuries away from the bright neon lights of Shanghai and Beijing. Ou Dede is the village musician and repository of his tribe's culture. With a tradition of passing songs and dances down from father to son, Ou Dede is faced with a dilemma - his three offspring are all female. With the local government deciding that the preservation of traditional Chinese cultures should now be a priority, Ou Dede is faced with either passing his knowledge on to one of his girls or to another boy in the village. This huge cultural crisis facing Ou Dede forms the backbone of this engrossing anthropological study. Who will he choose and what will be the consequences?
