Jia is an old man who has lost his son, and Seven is a high school girl whose mother is in debt. As a coffin painter, old Jia draws strange religious symbols, being an exceptional witness to people’s different attitudes towards their deaths. As time passes, Jia, Seven, and their mother bond by accompanying each other. Da Fei gives voice to the loneliness of people in the big city, in a world that is increasingly gloomy despite appearances.
