Beijing, 1977.

Two women, one holding a baby, look at and listen to a third woman reading from a pamphlet. A valise with a red cross imprinted on it rests between the women.

It's good to have birth control.

Two images are shown: in the first, a smiling woman in a blue shirt hands a stack of red-bound books to another woman, also smiling. In the second, workers in a field focus their attention on a woman talking and pointing to images on a display board. A valise with a red cross imprinted on it rests between the speaker and the audience.  Other people and several red flags planted in the ground are seen in the background.
