Three episodes depict the life of a miners’ family in the mighty mountains of Western China. Daughter Jingshui wants to begin a new life but must choose between love and living her dream. Her brother Jingsheng wants to become a singer rather than a miner, but has neither money nor good grades. Father Ding Baogen, soon to retire, sets out to find his missing wife. A picture language reminiscent of painting, mirroring major and minor dreams and aspirations. Variety magazine: “An impressive debut”.
