Until then, millions of local residents will have been relocated, because hundreds of towns and large areas of land will be under water as well as countless natural monuments and historically important places in the Three Gorges area, including Fengjie, a town that gained fame as the hometown of Li Bai, one of the most important poets in Chinese history. Before the Flood documents the relocation of Fengjie in 2002, before the first stage of flooding took place a move that greatly changed the lives of many people and caused them worry and strife.
