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.
