At the peak of the Cultural Revolution, driver Zhenquing, one of the party faithful, meets Yanping, a young music student. She, however, is far more interested in a fellow student and Western music than in him. Both are fateful attractions. She ends up married to Zhenquing. 30 years later, their son tries to get the money together for a cancer treatment for his father. The magical pictures of legendary cameraman Christopher Doyle create a playful portrait of different generations that is also an obituary for China's lost generation condemned to silence by Mao's Cultural Revolution.
