This play is not history in the sense in which dialogue and word might be used for historical or academic purposes. The intended purpose of this play is strictly for entertainment and dramatical production. For the sake of dramatic purposes, characters have been fused into one character, characters have been entirely deleted, and information gathered may have fallen into the category of folklore due to the passage of time and to the sensationalism surrounding such a tragedy. The reader or audience should, however, discover within the dramatic framework one of the modern-day tragedies that led to what is now known as the Chongqing Model which helped shape China's rapidly growing economy that shifted from the coastal cities to the interior provinces just a few years after the opening of the Three Gorges Dam and the dynamic success of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
