The poster features a silhouette of a woman staring through a barred doorway of a detention center. In the background there
is a red building with yellow glowing windows. The image is signed, "Laurie J. Chan 1975." The additional text states, "The
small building with these beams is just sufficient to shelter the body. It is unbearable to relate to the accumulating stories
on these island slopes. Wait till the day I become successful and fulfill my wish. I will not be yielding and I will overthrow
this detention center." There is English and Chinese text written in blue.
