An impoverished and uneducated man faces the wrath of his family and fellow villagers when he selflessly takes in an abused orphan in director Wulan Tana's heart-rending drama. Abused by her foster parents and convinced that she would be better off on her own, young Xiao Hua is taken in by a kindly man who dedicates his life to providing the child with a brighter future. Not everyone approves of the generous but simple man's noble efforts though, and when both his fellow villagers and his selfish son and daughter-in-law voice their disapproval of the situation, the unexpected response of one old man forces an entire village to reevaluate their intolerance and ingratitude towards the people who dedicate their lives to the betterment of others.
