In a Shandong village, an old peasant woman falls. Immediately, her children  take advantage of it to declare her disabled, in order to sign up her in a nursing home. Waiting for a bed to be released, the old mother is brought to each of her children’s home, no one willing to keep her. This chaotic journey keeps going on whilst both her health and her family ties deteriorate. At a point, an ill and sinister laugh dawns from this old forlorn woman.
