Instead of achieving enlightenment and universal truth, a bunch of townies mainly manage to discover how overburdened they are with the world. An off-the-road movie, in equal parts funny and philosophical. Zhun is a director living in Shanghai and married to a famous actress. But he escapes the glare of the spotlight and prefers to dedicate himself to his documentary film project about a traditional lament about the origins of the world. He and his small crew set out for the mountains of South-Western China. It's not long before they stray from the planned path for the first of many times and find themselves caught up in unfamiliar situations - also emotionally.
