This film is divided into three parts or chapters of a great story. The first narrator tells the story of an old woman who lives in the mountains, a victim of poverty and labor exploitation in rural areas, where she loses a son. Next, a young woman who lives with her partner in an apartment full of boxes takes over and narrates a move to study at a dance school. And, finally, the latter is replaced by a middle-aged teacher who gets on stage telling the viewer about her happy time at university during the 1980s. A totally different life from the one her parents lived. Economic development and progress have marked the generational change in Chinese society over the last three decades and the unstoppable pace of growth of large cities.
