China Media Group (CMG) released an eight-episode documentary titled "Rare Look into Xinjiang," which interviewed eight migrant workers from Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region who are creating a better life for themselves far from home.

The third episode tells the story of Gulhahir, a 26-year-old woman from Akqi County, Xinjiang's Kizilsu Kyrgyz Autonomous Prefecture. Gulhahir and her husband Bahtyar work together as assembly line operators in an electronics factory in Nanjing City, east China's Jiangsu Province.

Bahtyar's ancestors roamed the grasslands for generations, but his parents' expectations for their children go beyond the pastures. With the support from their family, the couple left home to start a career. At the factory in Nanjing, they learned many new skills and earned a much higher salary.
