Zhen Aimin is from jiangjiatun brigade, and his roots are Miao Hong. His father was heroic in the Huaihai Campaign, and his mother remarried immediately. He and his grandfather depended on each other. His grandfather died of starvation during the famine in 1960. At the age of 16, he began to sneak in order to survive. However, because he was an orphan and a descendant of martyrs, the commune and the brigade had no way to deal with him. His mind is smart, but he just doesn’t put his energy into his study.
