The documentary is available in a newly remastered version.

The documentary shows, without commenting, a China linked to ancient traditions, which nowadays struggles to compete with the rhythm of modern life: villages, customs, music and lifestyles of the minorities Bai, Lisu, Nusu, Miao, Dai , Hani, Naxi, Yi and Hui, before the advent of Chinese mass tourism and the exodus of young people to the metropolis in search of a job opportunity.

The rhythms of life of minorities were still strongly linked to the cycles of nature.

The documentary was shot in the counties of Nujiang (Gongshan, Bingzhongluo), Lijiang, Dali and Honghe (Yangshuo and surrounding area).
