"24.3.2014 Japanilaisten miehittämässä Kiinassa elellään toisen maailmansodan loppuvaiheita, kun joku tuntematon mies jättää kylänpahaseen kaksi vangittua henkilöä, Japanilaisen sotilaan ja Kiinalaisen tulkin. Mies neuvoo kyläläisiä kuulustelemaan näitä, ennen kuin hakee heidät uutenavuotena takaisin. 2000-luvun Kiinalaisessa elokuvassa ollaan sitä mieltä, että kaikki olisi paremmin jos tultaisiin vain toimeen keskenämme, mutta teemat jätetään alleviivaamattomiksi, ennakk"

"1944, World War II Era. Set in the final years of the Second-Sino Japanese War, this film follows the lives of Chinese peasants in Japanese occupied China residing near the Great Wall as they are forced to take care of two POW's by the Japanese. Does a great job of portraying the lack of education and superstition in rural China during this era. "

"2.2. Japanin miehitykseen toisen maailmansodan loppumetreillä sijoittuvassa filmissä kiinalaiseen kylään tuodaan anonyymisti kaksi sotavankia, toinen japanilainen sotilas ja toinen kiinalainen tulkki. Kylässä ei tiedetä, miten heistä pitäisi oikein huolehtia, ja kun heitä ei koskaan haeta pois, alkaa miehistä eroon pääseminen vaikuttaa varteenotettavalta vaihtoehdolta. Ennakkoluulot heijastuvat kyläläisten asenteissa, ikäviltä ongelmilta kun haluttaisiin vaikeina aikoina vältt"
