In the late 20th century, Dazhang goes to coastal Guangdong to find work. The work conditions in the quartz powder factory prove arduous and dangerous. After working for several years, Dazhang finds out that he suffers from advanced pneumoconiosis. His illness depletes nearly all his family’s savings and drains his wife’s will to live.
The only ones left in the house are the three children, ignorant of the situation; Dazhang, lying on his sickbed; and Dazhang’s parents. The middle-aged Dazhang does not want his life to end, but his situation seems hopeless. He places all his hopes on the next generation, but his children have not even grasped the meaning of “future”. Nevertheless, they move ahead on the road towards the future.
