Three Hairs was the name of a popular comic character, a street urchin with a bald head save for three thin stalks sticking straight up towards the sky. After a night on the streets, Three Hairs looks for work wherever he can get it; he polishes shoes, picks up garbage and even sells newspapers, but finally decides to give up. He puts a "For Sale" sign on his back and goes looking for a buyer. The war had left literally millions of homeless children in China, and Three Hair's misadventures in the comics were widely read as a rebuke to the government for their neglect of this problem.

DVD-R is in Chinese with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 70 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
