More than half of the world lives in cities, so the Global Lives Project chose to film five urban and five rural people.

The Global Lives project set out to document 24 hours in the daily life of ten everyday people from around the world who roughly represent the diversity of humanity. The goal was to create a dialogue about people's societal differences, as well as their common humanity.

One of the people they filmed was 37 year-old Kai Liu. He grew up in a small village in rural Sichuan, China. After marrying Delian, they migrated to the town of Anren, where they found work and lodging managing a convenience store. They have one daughter, and much of their resources are devoted to providing for her education. Kai works a second job as a purchasing officer at Anren middle school where he manages the procurement of food for the school's 2600 students.
