A collection of vignettes based on Pu Ning's personal life in China between 1950s and 1970s, Flower Terror portrays the absurdity of the period in which flowers seemed so alien to the oppressive atmosphere that they evoked a sense of terror in people's mind and heart. Many of the stories are so shocking and heart-wrenching that one cannot but feel suffocated.
