During the Japanese occupation of China, two prisoners are dumped in a peasant's home in a small town. The owner is bullied into keeping the prisoners until the next New Year, at which time they will be collected. The village leaders convene to interrogate the prisoners. The townspeople then struggle to accommodate the prisoners. One is a bellicose Japanese nationalist, the other a nervous translator. Will the townspeople manage to keep the prisoners until the New Year?

"9.7. Äärimmäisen upeasti kuvattu ja aluksi melko hauskakin kertomus kiinalaisen pikkukylän asukkaista toisen maailmansodan aikaan. Heille tuodaan kaksi japanilaisvankia, joita heidät pakotetaan kuulustelemaan, mutta kukaan ei tule hakemaan näitä takaisin, jolloin kyläläiset "ystävystyvät" näiden kanssa. "

Sosiaaliset suhteet, luokkaerot, rasismi, ja kaikki muu typerä ennakkoluuloihin perustuva paska, jolla pystymme el"
