Heaven is a story of unconditional love, the caring (and unpaid) nuns give to unfortunate children. It’s a story about selfless sacrifice in a communist and fiercely materialistic society. The surge in numbers of abandoned handicapped babies started in 1979 when the “one child policy” was introduced in China. Being forced to have only one child, many parents who had a handicapped new-born simply killed or abandoned it and tried to have a healthy one, as children are expected to take care of their parents when they grow old.
