Synopsis

In the early 1990s, in northern China, an old man lived by himself. It was a snowy winter but every day, he would go fishing, bring his catch home alive and then put it back in the river the next day. Then, one day, the old man found an injured bird on his way home from fishing and took it home to heal. A new bond developed between the old man and his feathered friend and the bird quickly became part of the old man’s life. No more fishing. One day, playing with his new pet in the wood, the old man met a young boy who was immediately attracted to the bird. So much so that he followed the man home. One day, while the old man slept, the boy took the the bird out for fun but soon ran into a group of other boys intent on stealing the animal. In a moment of desperation the boy was forced to release the bird. When he returned to the old man’s house... no bird! But relationships are like that. They begin and sometimes they end. But when the young boy entered the old man’s life, something changed forever.
