Synopsis

It is a still night and two elderly women, fellow artists and friends, walk on a path side by side along a river that runs through a Chinese village. It has been 50 years and they have not forgotten the propaganda songs that they learned at the educational camps during the Cultural Revolution. Rather than acknowledging them as nationalistic creations, the two friends have turned the songs into a longing for their youth.
