Synopsis

Chinese drama set during the contra-rural migration of the 1960s, which saw hundreds of thousands of families forced to leave the city and settle in rural areas to supposedly stir local industry expansion. The protagonist Quinghong (Yuanyuan Gao) is a teenager who has grown up in one such middle class family that's been forced to move to rural Guizhou from Shanghai. We see her come of age in a family unhappy with this enforced move in which the patriarch, longing to get back to Shanghai, takes his frustrations with his government out on his family, particularly her.
