Summary
In the 1950s, American journalist and author, Edgar Snow, along his wife, Lois Wheeler, were suspected of being communist sympathizers because of Snow's lifelong passion for China. The couple was blacklisted and fled to a new life in Switzerland. In this documentary, Lois Wheeler, now 90 years old, recounts Snow's accomplishments including being the first American to interview Chairman Mao Zedong and relives memories of a life slowly poisoned by the political battle against communism
