In June 1989, Chinese students defied their government and held pro-democracy demonstrations in Tiananmen Square. Their voices of protest were silenced with tanks and guns. Three years later, Frontline examines a country torn by the conflicting realities of liberal economic reform and continuing political repression. While China's ruling gerontocracy maintains a firm hold on political dissent, the people are embracing economic reforms and a more open society.
