Synopsis

Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in the lunar calendar. Each year, millions of migrant workers return home from the city to the countryside, and have to fight for space on overcrowded trains. This year, a couple travels with a purpose: bringing home their runaway teenage daughter, so that she can return to school and not spend her whole life in a factory like them.
