In the early 1980s, factory worker Liyun becomes pregnant for the second time, falling foul of the Chinese national policy of one-child families. Thus unfolds an intimate epic, an absorbing chronicle spanning more than three decades in the lives of two families, set against the social upheaval in China through to the present day.

This exquisite ensemble piece from director Wang Xiaoshuai (Beijing Bicycle) unwraps modern Chinese history with the rich insightfulness of a novel, as formally inventive as it is emotionally powerful. The film's two leads won the Best Actor and Best Actress awards at this year's Berlin Film Festival.
