      About the Film

      2009:

      First glance at the village school, in which the lives of 22 students including 17 left-behind children, together with the unsmooth application of the school’s reconstruction, were focused on.

      2010:

      Teacher Zhang, a supply teacher with more than 10 years teaching experience, was assigned to the reconstructed school. While in charge of two classes, he was concerned about, and striving for the obtainment of permanent teaching status. Meanwhile, folks began to doubt on the quality of the school buildings, as the left-behind children were facing numerous problems in life, study and emotion.

      2011:

      Mr. Zhang left the school out of dissatisfaction. After he left, the problems those left-behind children were confronting with became more serious.

      2012:

      Thanks to the media, the material condition of the village school began to turn around. However, it still had a long way to go.

      2013:

      The situation of those left-behind children seems unchanged, but it turned out to get changed day by day.

      2014:

      As another Spring Festival comes, what is going on in those left-behind families?
