We present an in-depth case analysis to provide a comprehensive understanding of the issues related to child sexual abuse in China. The case was an adult survivor from child sexual abuse recruited in Hong Kong. Through the framework of control and power, we argue that perpetrators systematically avoid being held responsible for their actions. They will go to great lengths to hide the truth. It is difficult for victims and their family members to seek help. The impact of sexual abuse on the victims is not only determined by the event itself, but also by the methods and attitudes adopted to handle the event. While people around the victim can assist him/her in healing, they can also impede the process and do more harm than good.
