Three little sisters, Ying (ten years old), Zhen (six years old) and Fen (four years old) live alone in a small village in the high mountains of the Yunnan region. The father works in the city a few hundred kilometers and the mother has left long ago. The little girls don’t go to school, spending their days working in the fields or wandering in the village. Quite and patient, Ying takes care of her two sisters and does most of the fieldwork. One day the father returns from the city. He is worried and then decides to take the two youngest with him to the city and leave Ying alone under the supervision of her grandfather. Ying has to adapt to an even more lonely life.
