Ten years ago, her father took her disabled mother with him to the city to work, but hasn’t been heard from since, leaving his young daughter with her disabled grandparents to fend for themselves in the mountains.The grandparents have never been beyond the village. Yu Yan dropped out of school in grade two and now helps her grandma to do housework, to take the sheep to graze up the hill every day and evening accompanied only by the sun, moon and her sheep. She wants to go back to school, but the burden on her family makes it impossible.

Her aunt is poor too and can only help her with some salt and oil. She has to farm to feed herself.
