Beginning with the true tragedy of the grounding of the "Golden Venture" off Rockaway Beach, Queens, NY on June 7th, 1992, during which ten illegal Chinese immigrants from Fujin drowned, the director travels the world, loosely following the path of the ship back to Africa and then Asia, documenting the realities of people smuggling. On a deeper level, Buckner's director struggles to balance the strictness of documenting fact with the commercial need to produce entertainment and the fact that he's often not present to film the true story. So to what extent can he manipulate what is happening? A hopeful book, The Origins of Solitude presents the serious reader with a different take on a global problem.
