Domestic anti-drug musical "Rebirth," featuring a touching tale of a narcotics police officer and his beloved wife, will start its first national tour in September.

The musical is based on the story of Luo Jinyong, a narcotics police officer in southwest China's Yunnan Province. In 2005, Luo was seriously injured in a fight with drug dealers as he made his way home alone.

His wife wrote over 600 love letters to Luo, reading them to him as he lay in a coma, until he regained consciousness after more than 1,000 days.

The production combines the Luo family story with various myths and legends from Yunnan's ethnic minorities, offering a glimpse into the unique eastern culture.
