The broken family, strangers from a distant province, upsets the village’s tight-knit traditional community structure. As the local village leaders struggle with how to handle the matter, the widow forms a bond with the hardworking young man who is tasked with providing for her and her children, and both he and the villagers discover that she has a dark story to tell, and the power to tell it wordlessly. Adapted from the prize-winning novel by Ge Shuiping.
