Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as millions of migrant factory workers attempt to return home by train during the week of Chinese New Year. It is an epic spectacle that tells us much about modern-day China. The film draws us into the fractured lives of a single migrant family caught up in this desperate annual migration. Sixteen years ago, the Zhangs abandoned their young children to find work in the city, consoled by the hope that their wages would provide their children with a better life. But the Zhangs' hopes for the future are undone by their very absence. In classic cinema verité style, the film follows the Zhangs' attempts to repair their ruptured family. Intimate and candid, the film paints a human portrait of the dramatic changes sweeping China. [adult content, language, subtitles]
