11-year-old Wang lives with his family in a remote village in Guizhou province. Life is tough, but they make the most of what little they have. When Wang is selected to lead his school through their daily gymnastic regiment, his teacher recommends that he wear a clean, new shirt - a request that forces his family to make a great sacrifice. Soon after, Wang has a strange encounter with a wounded, desperate man – a man on the run, wanted for murder. In no time the fates of Wang and the fugitive are intertwined.
