In a mountain village, 80-year-old grandma still labours hard for the family and prays everyday; her son does odd jobs in the woods and her grandson raises chickens. The piling mountains tightly bind them together and enfetter their fates, just as the giant ‘Turtle Rock’ at the gate of the village – it’s said that a turtle endeavoured to cultivate itself into the heavenly realm, but was struck by thunder and turned into a rock.
