For over 100 years, people have made a living from the forests of China's mountainous north, but new environmental regulations have put a stop to logging. Only a handful of timber men remain; the rest - and pretty much all of the women - have left for greener pastures. San Liangzi, a rugged and industrious worker, scratches a living doing odd jobs. For years, the lonely divorcée has nurtured a crush on Wei Meizi, the last single woman in town, who runs an inn with her elderly parents. San's friends tell him to forget her and take a North Korean wife, but he's adamant in his affections and blind to her reluctance. Director Yu Guangyi (hailed by Variety as 'one of the world's superior nonfiction filmmakers') documents their doomed relationship against the backdrop of a changing society with tenderness, remarkable frankness and much humour.
