    Railroads were not constructed until the end of the 19th century, and the train used by Wang Lung and his family is implied to be relatively new, which would place their departure to the South sometime in the early 20th century. Dramatic tension is constant as viewers contend with the threat he poses while his parents have no idea about the destruction he's already caused and his plans for more dangerous antisocial behavior. Kriegel draws a sweeping portrait of his central characters and the worlds they inhabited, from Lenny's apprenticeship in the New York boxing scene of the s to Duk Koo Kim's impoverished upbringing in postwar Korea. We empathise with the despair of a man in his mids trapped into a life of conformity, given too little spending money and too little freedom.
