In a remote Chinese mountain village, the community is presented with a peculiar gift: three years before, a photographer had taken pictures in the village, and now the villagers are confronted with the images. The photographs tear open old wounds, tell of shattered dreams, deceased friends and forgotten ideas. They also rekindle memories of happy days and tender moments. The portrait of a rural community, full of quiet beauty and exquisitely composed images.
