An epic story that followed the life of a feisty Chinese woman, from a little girl peddling goods on a street in China to a woman working the Canadian railway construction.

Not to be confused with the 1990 PBS TV American Experience series THE Iron Road, --- from Wikipedia ---

Iron Road is a 2009 Canada/China television miniseries written by Barry Pearson and Raymond Storey and directed by David Wu. Starring Sun Li, Luke Macfarlane, Peter O'Toole, Sam Neill, and Charlotte Sullivan, Iron Road chronicles the untold story of Chinese workers who helped to build the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1880s. The mini-series was filmed in the Kamloops, B.C. area with many local actors.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Nice historical film but entertaining at the same time. Worth a watch.

A good movie. Shows the exploitation and the plight of the Chinese who were paid only a dollar a day (that was a third or a half less than their coworkers) in the building of the rail road. At the end, Canada imposed a head tax; a tragic remembrance of their contribution.
