    • Synopsis
    • Two siblings thrive through a humble life in a small town of China. The brother works as a shoe repairer and the sister sells flatbreads. The brother, however been married for a decade, finds nothing to talk about with his wife while his still-single sister is desperately looking for a partner through a dating show.
      Soon the brother finds out that his wife is actually cheating on him, and comes close to killing her several times. Meanwhile, the sister marries a cook, but soon regrets it.
      In order to find someone to talk to, the siblings embark on a difficult journey with heart-wrenching stories unfolding along the way. All this is witnessed by the brother’s little girl, who is only seven years old.
