This dad has brought his son, Haoribao, back to the prairie. The little one is a spitting image of himself, but a little stubborn, like his late-mother.
There’s an obvious communication breakdown — they hardly talk. His son isn’t interested in his surroundings, and is plugged in only to his music player. Everything was alien to him.
But a song broke the silence: first in anger, then it brought both of them together.
Over the vastness of the unspoken, over the Mongolian plains, here’s a beautiful portrait of two lonely souls, one man, one boy, longing and yearning for love.
And when the storm cleared, they went home.
