A political novel about the man who shocked the world when he stood up to armored tanks during the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.

Breaking a quarter of a century of censorship, a group of Chinese leaders try to broadcast on TV a meeting between the two protagonists of the most iconic photograph of the Tiananmen protests of 1989. This audiovisual rewriting of the events will change the lives of a certain group of characters. Durry, a modern-day antihero, Communist member and activist, will head up the operation with an old Caspian oligarch and a member of the Chinese secret service. Together they will throw new light on the iconic Tank Man.
