Summary (IBList user synopsis):

In a 1984-type future Hanoi, with the populace monitored through their TVs, Tung Chien is an official in the Ministry of Cultural Artifacts. When he's handed a new assignment to examine thousands of students' test papers for evidence of political deviance he knows it must be a trap -- a test of his own political values, which are starting to waver.
