They are the children of criminals. Their parents are doing time in Chinese prisons, some serving life sentences for horrific crimes. With no one to care for them and nowhere to go, Sun Village, a shelter in Beijing, takes them in.

Run by a former prison officer, Sun Village is helping raise China's most vulnerable young people - teaching them to cook and clean, and helping them deal with their trauma.

On this episode, 101 East meets the children growing up with their parents behind bars.
