In Yueyang, Hunan Province, the Ximao clan, a group of 20-odd individuals form what amounts to a village. The director, both as a member of the community and a filmmaker, intervenes in the archaeological archival work. Referencing the worldview passed down through the daily lives, myths, and traditions of these people, this grand experimental ethnographic documentary attempts a new interpretation.
