Synopsis

Thirteen-year-old Wei Minzhi is assigned to work as a substitute teacher in a poverty-stricken region of rural China. However, she will only be paid if she manages to keep the already-fast-depleting class intact. So when she discovers one morning that pupil Zhang Huike has been sent by his mother to work in the city, she does the only thing she can do and goes after him. Unfamiliar with city life, she suffers many dispiriting knock-backs in her attempts to locate her young charge, and it is only when she asks a TV station for help that her efforts bear fruit.
