Netflix’s new show Marco Polo may be set in the 13th century, but its portrayal of class and identity conflicts are still relevant issues today. While Jingim struggles to identify with his Mongol heritage, Marco Polo is rejected by his own and forced to occupy that space between two cultures. Ling Ling, too, becomes a child brought up in a world vastly different than the one she was born into. How will these three characters discover who they are in the midst of battles, conflicts and the collision of their worlds?
