Set in the harsh grasslands of inner Mongolia, the film like many of its contemporaries shows you a contrasting China. Tuya (Nan Yu), a shepherd struggles to support her disabled husband, Bater (Bater) and children. It is her own sister-in-law who suggests that she divorce Bater and re-marry so that her family could survive. Tuya agrees with the condition that her new husbands supports Bater too. Like the constrasting country it portrays, the film is stark but has its lighter moments too.
