abstract
"In the mid-1960s the Chinese government, fearing conflict with the Soviet Union, called for strategically important factories to be moved inland to form a 'Third Line of Defense'. Answering their country's call, innumerable workers and their families left their homes in such large cities as Shanghai and Beijing and followed the factories to the barren terrain of western China. Set twenty years later, as the country begins to reform and open up to the rest of the world, Wang Xiaoshuai's moving film tells the poignant tale of one such displaced family and the conflict that arises when 19 year-old Qinghong finds love for the first time with a local boy, much to the disapproval of her father who dreams of returning his family to Shanghai."--Container.
