Synopsis

A group of migrant children have grown up next to a rubbish dumpsite in Daxing in the southern suburbs of Beijing. As high- rise buildings begin to encroach upon their shanty settlement and threaten to swallow up their makeshift hut, the children are faced with a predicament. Should they continue their studies or submit to the early onset of adulthood?
