Description: Sun Wangquan (Zhang Yimou) returns to his remote and primitive mountain village after studying for years in the city in this tedious drama. He hopes to raise the standard of living for the desert wasteland with simple technology that can produce a steady water supply. Sun is coveted by two women.
