Because of the West-East Gas Pipeline project and the so-called village urbanization campaign, the people of a long-isolated town in north-west China are removed, by force and deceit, from the land that has sheltered them for generations. The real protagonist of this film is the desolate land that stands in for the restlessness and helplessness of the people. "*This is a film about the rituals of rural life. In a remote village in northwestern China, which is also the director’s hometown, Li Peifeng records scenes of life and death and the destinies of the farmers who have worked in the northern lands for generations*." –***Ai Weiwei***
