Two greedy men plan the murder of a 16-year-old peasant boy in a poorly equipped mine. Pretending the boy is a relative, they count on extorting money from the mine owner after the boy's "accidental" death. But the boy's innocence creates tension and unexpected twists in the murderous mineworkers' scheme.

Blind Shaft is not only a gripping thriller but also an eye-opening insight into the lives of the vast Chinese underclass. As one character says, "China has a shortage of everything but people".
