Movie Info

The master musician (Liu Zhongyuan) and his young apprentice, Shitou (Huang Lei), are traveling through the demanding mountainous region of western China. They're also both blind. The master was given a sanxian as a child and told that his sight would be restored after he broke his 1,000th string, and he's currently on string 995. Shitou, however, seems to be more interested in Lanxiu (Xu Qing), the beautiful young villager he meets on his journey.
