Every morning, Dayao, a young Chinese peasant, leaves his native countryside to work in the nearby big city. His pregnant wife dreams of a more confortable urban life. When he miraculously escapes from a construction site accident, he withdraws into silence and takes refuge in the nature. There, his extraordinary gift will reveal itself.
